Seun Kuti pays tribute to Fela 25 years after death

Afrobeat star Seun Kuti has paid a tribute to his father Fela Anikulapo Kuti on the 25th anniversary of the latter’s death.

Seun celebrated the music legend in an Instagram post on Tuesday.

“25 years ago you transitioned. Words can’t begin to express how much more alive you have become in spirit. As we continue to strive for the Africa you fought for, we continue to ask that you allow your light to guide our path. Ase,” he wrote.

Seun’s brother Femi Kuti also joined him in celebrating Fela on Instagram.

He wrote: “25years on still in our heart, miss you more and more. The one and only Abami eda #FELA the SOUL of #Afrobeat.”

Fela died on August 2, 1997, sending fans all over the world into a state of shock.

His now late elder brother Professor Olikoye Ransome-Kuti announced at a press conference the day after that the musician died from complications related to AIDS.
