Everyone has always wished to have a painless and stress-free death. This is often wished for because no one loves going through the stress of hospital bills, injections, drips or surgeries before passing away.

Such is also the wish of veteran Afro beat singer Femi Kuti. The 56-year-old man in an interview with The Cable revealed that he will love to die with a smile on his face.
This revelation was made at his 10th studio album listening party held at Sheraton Hotel, Ikeja, Lagos, on Saturday, September, 22.

That was not all, the singer also disclosed that the last time he listened to music was in year 2000.

He said “I think it will inspire people, the title of the album says it. We have to understand that we are one people. The day I die, I want to die with a smile. I am 56 now, I am not afraid because I know it will eventually come. I have not listened to music since 2000. Of course, when you go to the mall or visit places, you hear music here and there but I never go out of my way to listen to music. In the beginning, it was my father who got me listening to music but I read a Miles Davis book, where he said, I wanted to be original, so I stopped listening to music.”
