Afrobeat singer Seun Kuti has claimed that it was Africans who taught Europeans that they had to bathe every day.

Speaking in the latest episode of the ‘Fresh Off The Boat’ podcast via Skype, Kuti claimed that before Africans introduced Europeans to the habit of bathing daily, Queen Elizabeth I used to bathe once a month to encourage her subjects to bathe.

He said: “The first bathhouses were in Africa. It is a shame that many Africans don’t know that we taught the Europeans that they had to bathe every day.

“Queen Elizabeth’s grandmother, Elizabeth I, then started bathing once a month as an example to her people to become tidy and clean.

“It’s a shame that Africans don’t know that their ancestors started the idea of spa. Africans taught British people how to bathe. They didn’t use to bathe regularly. Read their history.”
