Fela Kuti’s Son Criticized Over Choice Of Daughter’s Name

Seun Kuti, son of late Afro-beat king, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti who recently welcomed a new baby with his girlfriend/back-up dancer, Yetunde Ademiluyi in December 2013 is under heavy criticism over the choice of his daughter’s name.

A low profile naming ceremony was held for the baby on Saturday, February 8th at his residence in Ikeja, Lagos and Seun’s beautiful daughter was christened ‘Ifafunmike’ which means “A child gotten from a deity”.

This action has not gone down well with many of his fans. A fan who pleaded anonymity said that what Seun did is an indication that there is more to it than meets the eye.

“Why will Seun go ahead and name his new-born baby ‘Ifafunmike’? It is rather absurd and shows that there is a spiritual undertone to the event. It is ungodly. His contemporaries who have been getting married and delivering babies have not done this kind of thing. I am disappointed,” said the fan.
