‘My Wife knew I would not be faithful – Femi Kuti

Iconic singer, Femi Kuti in a recent interview  with Zinnia of HFTV Africa has given an in-dept insight about his failed marriage with Funke Kuti. 

Shedding light on his marriage to Funke, he said 
   "I like women but I don’t have wives. When I was getting married, my wife (Funke) knew I would not be faithful...

Back in 2011, Femi Kuti in an interview with Encomium, revealed that he filed for divorce from then-wife, Funke because

“I am divorcing her to protect my side of my inheritance, because I have five children. I have to protect the interest of my children. Since we are still legally married, what if I die today? The law will favour my wife. If I don’t divorce her, my children may suffer. What if I die and we have not divorced and then she comes and claims everything? 

The other children will not get anything and there will be a big war in my family. I will be dead and my ghost will be saying don’t fight, but they wouldn’t hear what I am saying. We know it happens. My lawyer advised me to think of the future so I quickly regulate my will so no one can disturb my children. You know it happens in our country, when you have children from different women, there’s bound to be stress. So I have to do my will and to do that requires a divorce.”
