Yesterday, a photo shared by Yeni Kuti on Instagram showing Femi Kuti on a hospital bed was all over the intrnet as fans began sending ‘Get well soon’ messages to the afrobeat musician.
At that time, we weren’t sure how and why the 53 year old hardworking musician went to the hospital, but now we can confirm that he was in the hospital for ‘Hernia’ surgery.
Hernia is a medical condition that occurs when an organ or fatty tissue squeezes through a weak spot in a surrounding muscle or connective tissue called fascia.
The most common types of Hernia are inguinal (inner groin), incisional (resulting from an incision), femoral (outer groin), umbilical (belly button), and hiatal (upper stomach). Femi Kuti’s surgery was carried out at Lagoon Hospital in Lagos, and he’s back home recuperating and is expected to make a full recovery in 2 weeks.
We wish the Nigerian music legend quick recovery…
