Seun Kuti, the Afrobeat singer, has celebrated his 40th birthday in a very unique and special way.


Seun, who is the youngest son of Fela Kuti, the late iconic Afrobeat musician, turned 40 on January 11, 2023.

To mark his birthday, the singer shared a picture where he is seen wearing an all-white outfit, decorated with cowries and a head tie to match.

In the birthday photoshoot, Seun also held a staff and stood like “a celestial being”.


The musician also declared his utmost desire to become an “African elder.”

“Happy birthday to me, the goal is to become an African elder ie one that has aged with grace and dignity that the young ones can emulate,” he wrote.

“I’m happy to make it to 40! The journey continues.”

The photo was creatively captured by Kelechi Amadi, the celebrity photographer.

Yetunde, the wife of Seun, also took to her Instagram page to lavish her husband with praises on his birthday.

“I always have so much to say every year! Because you never stop rocking my world. But I am making it simple! Life is more fun with you by my side baby,” she wrote.

“You are one of a kind! Rare asf! You are my rock! And we are going to keep rocking each other’s world! Thanks for all the priceless memories we’ve made together!! I pray that the ancestors continue to guide you through the right parts. I wish nothing but the best for you.


“Thank you for all you are, not only to me and our daughter but also to the world! There’s no one I’d rather have by my side as we go through the highs and lows of life together. Happy Birthday, husband.”

Seun and Yetunde tied the knot in October 2020. In 2013, they welcomed their baby girl.
