“Gay People Lived With Fela” - Seun Kuti

Afrobeat musician, Seun Kuti, has revealed that his legendary father, Fela Anikulakpo Kuti, was open to homosexuals, showing them hospitality, and even admitting them into his home.

Seun believes that Fela would never have given his support to the anti-gay law, if he were alive. Speaking to Television Continental reporters, he revealed that he is against the popular Nigerian law which criminalise same sex intimate relationships.

"I do not support the anti gay law and contrary to what people think, if my father was alive, he would not have supported the law too. I know him more than all the people saying otherwise. In our house in Kalakuta, there were gay people living there,’ Kuti said.

The controversial law was passed earlier in the year and prescribes a 14-year jail term for offenders.
