Olufela Olufemi Anikulapo Kuti (born 16 June 1962) popularly known as Femi Kuti, is an award-winning Nigerianmarker musician and the oldest son of legendary afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti.

Femi was born in London to Fela and Remi Kuti and grew up in the former Nigerian capital, Lagosmarker. His mother soon left his father, taking Femi to live with her. In 1977, though, Femi chose to move in with his father. Femi eventually became a member of his father's band.

Like his father, Femi has shown a strong commitment to social and political causes throughout his career, but he differs from his father in his religious views.

In 2001, Femi collaborated on his album Fight to Win with a number of U.S. musicians, such as Common, Mos Def, and Jaguar Wright.

In 2002, Femi's mother, who had played an influential role in Femi's life, died at the age of 60. Femi's 12-year-old son currently appears as part of his act, playing alto saxophone.

Femi Kuti's voice is featured in the videogame Grand Theft Auto IV, where he is the host of radio station IF 99 (International Funk 99, described as "playing a great selection of classics from West Africa, the US and elsewhere").
