Musician Femi Kuti shared a story of how his legendary father Fela missed his flight to Italy despite booking 73 tickets.
Femi revealed that it was far back in 1981 and his first time to Italy, so he was eager to travel and he kept hurrying his father.
The singer stated that the legendary musician wasted time bathing while bragging that he booked 73 tickets which he said was almost half of the plane.
By the time they got to the airport, the plane was just leaving and it had just 10 passengers, to Fela's surprise.
