Femi Kuti Speaks About Ex-Wife, Funke, And The Downside Of Marriage

Popular Nollywood Afrobeat musician, Femi Kuti spoke to The Nation about his marriage to his ex-wife, Funke, and disclosing why he married her despite his disbelief in marriage.
Femi said:

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. 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.
