Being Fela’s daughter once ruined my relationship – Yeni Kuti

Yeni, a media personality and first child of Afrobeat pioneer, Fela Kuti, has recalled how being the daughter of the renegade musician once cost her relationship.

Speaking in a recent interview with Daily Trust, Yeni said being Fela’s child wasn’t cool.

The renowned singer and dancer also recounted how a lady once broke up with her younger brother, Femi, after finding out he is Fela’s child.

She said, “Femi had a girlfriend and immediately they knew he was Fela’s son, they broke up the relationship. A girl warned my cousin never to introduce her to such a type of person [Fela’s family].

“People did not want to know us because at the time he [Fela] was in and out of jail. However, I can say that being Fela’s child then and now are two totally different things. Then it was not really a good thing to be Fela’s child which I did not care about but now it is a good thing. We have been through a phase.”

She added: “I remember one guy that I really liked. I mean, I really liked him but his mother walked me out of their house. The woman was yelling, ‘Don’t come near my son again. You want to destroy my son’s life.’”
