See The House Where Fela Anikulapo Kuti Was Born; their Abeokuta Ancestory Home!

That is the Kuti Family House in Abeokuta.

The house belongs to Reverend Oludotun Ransome-Kuti who happens to be the first NUT President in Nigeria.

It is in this very house that Olusegun Olufela Oludotun Ransome-Kuti popularly known as Fela Anikulapo Kuti was born same as Beeko Ransome-Kuti and Olikoye Ransome-Kuti.

The house is built with stones and an house built with stones in the then Abeokuta shows the wealthy status of the owner.

This house is located at Nepa Road, Sapon Area, Abeokuta.

That is the current shape of the house; no one is actually living there and on a day like this, Fela was born and welcomed into that family house by Olufunmilayo Ransome-Kuti who is the wife of Reverend Oludotun Ransome-Kuti.

Very much important it is that Anikulapo is a name given to Fela by himself and also, Prof. Oluwole Soyinka is a cousin to the late afro musician!

Long live Fela Anikulapo Kuti!
