Ike Ekweremadu: Seun Kuti Berates Obasanjo Over Mercy Plea

Seun Kuti, an afrobeat singer who has been nominated for a Grammy award, recently made a claim that his family was responsible for establishing the Anglican Church in Nigeria.

Kuti’s great grandfather, Josiah Ransome-Kuti, and his grandfather, Reverend Israel Oludotun Ransome-Kuti, were both Anglican ministers during the colonial era in Nigeria.

However, despite his family’s involvement in spreading Christianity in Nigeria, Kuti himself does not practice the religion.

In fact, he confidently stated that he follows the religion of “juju.”


During an interview on the Spill With Phyna podcast, Kuti encouraged other Africans to embrace African traditional religions once again.
