Nigerian afrobeat musician, Femi Kuti, has stated that his people must cremate him when he dies.
He disclosed this during a performance at the New Afrika Shrine on Sunday, January 6th, 2022.
According to him, he doesn’t want a loud burial ceremony, adding that the funeral should only be attended by close friends and family members.
In his words, “When I die, please cremate me, burn my body. It’s the most hygienic way.
“Have you thought about Ikoyi cemetery? This Lagos has been in existence for let’s just say 60 years and people die; if they don’t die today, they die tomorrow and that burial ground has never been full.
“And if you check it, it’s not like it’s one million acres since I was little when we used to bury people there.”
