Afrobeat musician Seun Kuti on Wednesday expressed his appreciation for his family members, in the wake of his release from police custody on Tuesday after eight days.
In a Facebook post shared on Tuesday night, moments after his release, Kuti said though he is an “orphan”, he still had family.
In a separate post, he expressed his “profound thanks” to everyone who showed him “all this love”.
The son of the late Afrobeat icon Fela also showed his gratitude his legal team, including Femi Falana (SAN), Olumide Fisika (SAN) and Kayode Adegoke (SAN) Barrister Ogunlana.
Kuti, in yet another appreciation post on Wednesday, described his release as a birthday gift to his elder sister, Yeni, who turns 62 today.
The artist had turned himself in to the Lagos State Police Command on May 15 for investigation of his assault on a policeman captured in a now viral video.
Although the magistrates’ court in the Yaba area of Lagos State granted him bail the following day, he was held until his release on Tuesday (yesterday).
