On 3 August 1997, Olikoye Ransome-Kuti, already a prominent AIDS activist and former Minister of Health, announced his younger brother’s death a day earlier from complications related to AIDS. However, there has been no definitive proof that Kuti died from complications related to HIV/AIDS, and much skepticism surrounds this alleged cause of death and the sources that have popularized this claim.
Subsequent replies under the quoted tweet made us realize that Fela had 27 wives and a lot of concubines, but after his death non of his wives,concubines or relatives was reported to have died of AIDS. With this point above what do you think was the cause of Fela’s death.
