The Ikoyi Cemetry never gets full

Veteran Singer, Femi Anikulapo Kuti has revealed the reason he wants his body cremated and burnt when he dies.

According to the 59 year old musician, he wouldn’t like a big burial ceremony but a simple ceremony and would prefer his body to be cremated.

The sensational musician and the grandchild of political campaigner Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti had stated on Saturday during his performance at the New Africa Shrine.

He said:

”When i die, please cremate me, burn my body. It is the most hygienic way”

”Have you all thought about Ikoyi Cemetry, this Lagos has been in existence for let’s just say 60 years and people die”.

”If they dont’t die today, they will die tomorrow and that burial ground has never been full and if you check it, it is not like it’s one million acres since i was little when we used to bury people there”.
