Made Kuti is the grandson of legendary Nigerian singer Fela Anikulapo Kuti and the son of Femi Kuti. He followed his grandfather and father’s path in the music industry and is already making waves not just in Nigerian but outside the country.
His full name is Omorinmade Anikulapo Kuti, and he was born to Femi and Funke Kuti on the 26th of September 1996 at the New Afrika Shrine, Ikeja Lagos state. He celebrated his 25th birthday in September 2021.
Made Kuti attended Trinity Laban Conservatoire in London, which was the same school his grandfather Fela Kuti attended.
Made Kuti began to play multiple musical instruments, including the trumpet, alto, sax, piano and drums, from his childhood. The record revealed he started playing the trumpet at the age of three; he disclosed most of the instruments he plays were learnt on his own.
As he grew up, Made Kuti joined his father’s band Positive Force where he played the bass and saxophone and started going on tours with the band at the age of 8.

Made Kuti released his first single titled “Free Your Mind” in October 2020 and debuted an album titled For(e)ward, which was released solo and was a part of a double record titled Legacy+ released alongside his father, Femi Kuti.
Fela Kuti’s grandson also unveiled his band named Movement in 2021, and hopefully, he could soon become a Grammy award winner.
Made Kuti is single as there are no details about him being in a relationship available on social media.
While the likes of Wizkid, Femi Kuti and Burna Boy are used to getting nominated for the prestigious award, Made Kuti and Tems are first-timers, part of the reasons why it is a big boost to their careers.
Made Kuti and Femi Kuti’s joint album, ‘Legacy +,’ was one of the albums nominated for the Best Global Music Album for the Grammy Awards.
He is also the third from the Kuti’s dynasty to be nominated for the award as his father Femi and his uncle Seun Kuti have been set in the past, but none is yet to win; hopefully, he could be a pacesetter.
There are no details on Made Kuti’s net worth, but he leaves a comfortable lifestyle.
