Afrobeat icon Femi Kuti has revealed if he didn’t marry his ex-wife Funke, they would have probably still been together.
Speaking to the Nation about his marriage to his ex-wife, he noted that he does not believe in the marriage institution.
“I never believed in marriage. I loved my wife, and got carried away. I am happy about the experience. We got married for a number of reasons; she left home, and many people said she had made the greatest mistake of her life; she got pregnant; and for us to have a certain status for our child; documentation and so on. There were so many reasons to get married.”“Now we are great friends, but probably if we had not gotten married, we probably would have still been together.”
He said further: “When you get married, if it breaks up, you get into a very bitter street, that makes it is very difficult for people to make up afterwards. Everything goes bitter around you, and hatred comes in. And when hatred comes, you find that many couples can no longer stand each other”.
