Son of Fela Kuti, the Afro Beat Lengend, Femi Kuti, spoke in an interview about his ex-wife. In the interview with the Nation, Femi Kuti claimed he never believed in marriage but cherishes the experience of being married to his ex-wife. Femi also disclosed the reasons why he got married.
I never believed in marriage. I loved my wife, and got carried away. I am happy about the experience. We got married for a number of reasons; she left home, and many people said she had made the greatest mistake of her life; she got pregnant; and for us to have a certain status for our child; documentation and so on. There were so many reasons to get married.
Femi Kuti said that even with the divorce, he and his ex-wife Funke Kuti, are still in good terms.
Now we are great friends, but probably if we had not gotten married, we probably would have still been together. When you get married, if it breaks up, you get into a very bitter street, that makes it is very difficult for people to make up afterwards. Everything goes bitter around you, and hatred comes in. And when hatred comes, you find that many couples can no longer stand each other.
