Twenty years after the death of her father, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, the first daughter of the late Afrobeat pioneer, Yeni Kuti, has claimed that she has not stopped seeing him in her dreams.
She made the disclosure during a radio talk-show titled, ‘The discourse with Jimi Disu’ on Classic FM 97.3 recently.
According to the former dancer, who pioneered the idea of Felabration, a music festival conceived to celebrate the life and contributions of her father Fela Kuti to the Nigerian society, she said:
“It’s 20 years since my father died, but it doesn’t seem as if he has been gone for so long. I miss him and I still talk to him in my mind. He and other departed members of my family have also appeared to me in my dreams. I don’t know if it is right to say that they appear to me, but I see them in my dreams. I dream of them a lot.”
Yeni also disclosed that several people approached her in the past and claimed they had messages from her father. But she ignored them.
“I believe in life after death. Also, I believe that if my father has a message for me, he will come directly to me and not go through someone I don’t know or like. If anybody tells me that Fela has sent a message to me through him, I would tell him to ask my dad to appear to me directly himself,” she said.
Waying into the high cases of corruption in the country, she urged the Federal Government to consider adopting traditional African medicine (also known as ‘juju’) as a tool to combat corruption, especially in official circles.
