Made Kuti, the grandson of Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, the late Afrobeat legend, has revealed how he met Inedoye Onyeso, his wife.


The couple got married on Wednesday.

During a short interview at the wedding ceremony, Made disclosed that he and Inedoye attended the same high school.

The Afrobeat star also revealed that his wife was his “school daughter” back then.


Made said he started to develop emotional feelings towards her after he graduated from the university.

“About 7 years later, in 2018 like she said. I came back from uni, I just graduated and it picked up from there,” he said.

“We had this history and a bright future apparently. We have been officially together for three years, today is our anniversary and it was November 1, 2020 post-COVID, we had just been isolated for God knows how long and we finally met people and from there, we started talking.”


When asked to mention what he likes the most about Inedoye, Made replied, “Her smile. I can live with that smile for the rest of my life”.

Made is a songwriter and instrumentalist.

He released his debut album, titled ‘Forward’ in 2021.

Last year, his collaborative work with Femi Kuti, his father titled ‘Legacy+’, was nominated for the Best Global Music Album category at the 2022 Grammy Awards.
