Afrobeat musician, Seun Kuti, has revealed that his legendary father, Fela Anikulakpo Kuti, was open to homosexuals, showing them hospitality, and even admitting them into his home.
Seun believes that Fela would never have given his support to the anti-g*y law, if he were alive. Speaking to Television Continental reporters, he revealed that he is against the popular Nigerian law which criminalize same s*x intimate relationships.
“I do not support the anti g*y law and contrary to what people think, if my father was alive, he would not have supported the law too.
I know him more than all the people saying otherwise. In our house in Kalakuta, there were g*y people living there,’ Kuti said.
The controversial law was passed earlier in the year and prescribes a 14-year jail term for offenders.
