King of Afro-beats Femi Kuti, who clocked 46 two weeks back, revealed that he is not the father of two of his five children.
According to Encomium, he revealed that out of his five children — Made, Afolabi, Dupe, Tosin and Ayomide— two of them, Dupe and Tosin (a boy and a girl), have been discovered not to be his biological children. This, he said, was revealed after a recent DNA test.
“I did a DNA test and was told two of the children are not mine — the first two after Made (a boy and a girl). It is very serious. I never knew somebody could give you what is not yours. I’ve three boys now. I can’t father children I was tricked to believe I am their father,” he lamented.
Because of the betrayal, he returned the two children, Dupe and Tosin, to their mothers.
Funke, his ex-wife, gave birth to his first child and son, Made, who Femi treasures so much. And Bisi Ajala gave birth to Ayomide and one other child that the DNA test recently proved was not his. The third woman’s name was not revealed.
