One of late Afrobeat icon, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti’s dancers, Dodo Mayana has passed away. Multiple reports have it that Dodo, as she is fondly called, was found dead at Grammar School bus stop, Omole Estate, Lagos.

According to Femi Kuti who broke the news on social media, the circumstances surrounding Dodo’s death is suspicious as she was found disposed of her personal belongings.

Femi tweeted; “Heard Dodo who sells outside the Shrine was killed by a hit and run car on her way home by grammar School opposite Omole estate. I’m so sad.”

“Sounds more like Dodo was mugged because when we got to her nothing was found on her, no money, no phone. Mehn sad,” another tweet reads.

The music star went further to say, “Dodo was such a nice and friendly person RIP. May those who did this not go free. Unfortunately our police might never find them.”

“She was mugged (they now say must likely she took first chance) killed dumped by grammar school,” he concluded.

Dodo Mayana, a popular woman at the Afrika Shrine, was one of Fela’s dancers until his demise.

After working with Fela until his death, Mayana declared loyalty for Femi and became one of his cage dancers.
