Femi Kuti, son of Afrobeat maestro Fela Kuti, underwent an emergency surgery at The Lagoon Hospital in Lagos on Sunday, November 22, for an undisclosed ailment.
Yeni Kuti, his elder sister, posted a photo of him while he lay in his hospital bed recuperating. Femi has been discharged from the hospital and will be at home recuperating for some weeks.
Yeni wrote: “Femi Kuti after the operation. Smiling, high on morphine. It’s a morphine thing.”
According to news, Funke, Femi Kuti’s ex-wife, who seems to have been around during the surgery, also shared a video clip of him leaving the hospital. She also joked about Femi composing new songs while he was intoxicated with pain medication.
