Seun Kuti, the afrobeat singer nominated for a Grammy, asserts that his family played a pivotal role in establishing the Anglican Church in Nigeria.
As per reports from Daily Post, Kuti’s great-grandfather, Josiah Ransome-Kuti, and grandfather, Reverend Israel Oludotun Ransome-Kuti, were Anglican ministers during colonial Nigeria.
Despite his family’s historical involvement in spreading Christianity in Nigeria, the singer clarified that he does not adhere to the religion.
He boldly declared that he is a “juju” worshipper.
Speaking in the latest episode of the Spill With Phyna podcast, Kuti urged other Africans to return to African traditional religions.
“It was my family that started 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.”
