Afrobeat singer, Seun Kuti, disclosed that his family played a key role in establishing the Anglican Church in Nigeria.
Kuti’s great-grandfather and grandfather, Josiah Ransome-Kuti and Reverend Israel Oludotun Ransome-Kuti, were Anglican ministers during Nigeria’s colonial period.
Despite his family’s significant contributions to Christianity in Nigeria, Seun Kuti clarified that he does not follow the religion.
During an interview on the Spill With Phyna podcast, Kuti mentioned that he is a follower of “juju” worship.
“It was my family that started the Anglican side of Christianity in this country if you look back at it. We are among the pioneers. So, we’ve been there, we’ve done that and we’ve moved on. And we hope Africans can follow suit. I don’t go to church. Na juju me I dey do.”
