“Cremate me when I die; it is the most hygienic way” – Femi Kuti reveals why he wants his body burnt when he dies

Femi Kuti, a veteran Afrobeat singer and eldest son of Afrobeat pioneer, Fela Kuti, has revealed the reason why he would want his body to be cremated.

According to the 59 year old musician, he wouldn’t like a big burial ceremony but a simple ceremony and would prefer his body to be cremated.

The sensational musician and the grandchild of political campaigner, Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti had stated on Saturday during his performance at the New Africa Shrine.

He said:

“When I die, please cremate me, burn my body. It is the most hygienic way. Have you all thought about Ikoyi cemetery, this Lagos has been in existence for let’s just say 60 years and people dle, if they don’t die today, they will die tomorrow and that burial ground has never been full and if you check it, it is not like it’s 1 million acres since I was little when we used to bury people there.”
