    Check out beautiful throwback photos of Fela Kuti when he got married to 27 women on the same day – Check out list of some of the women (PHOTOS)

    Award winning Nigerian Afrobeat legend Fela Anikulapo Kuti was a human right activist, instrumentalist and a political rebel. While he was alive, he was tagged one of Africa’s most challenging and charismatic performers.

    Before his death on August 2, 1997, the legend was reported to have married about 27 wives and reportedly got married to them the same day. It was also added that these women were his back up dancers.

    According to reports the deceased was able to pull off the deed by putting out a notebook and asking any of the girls who were willing to marry him to write down their names and instantly 27 of them did.

    However, after much consideration Fela Kuti reportedly called about 12 Ifa priests to join the wives in holy matrimony at the Parisona Hotel located in Anthony, Lagos. It was also added a handful of the wives married against their parents’ consent but that did not stop the wedding from taking place.

    The event was joined by band members, friends and family. Fela placed naira notes on their heads, offered a few words and dished around marriage certificates. The legend was said to have made love to his women a day after another before taking them to Ghana for their honeymoon.
