Yeni Kuti is over the moon
Some might actually wish and pray they were in the shoes of children of late Afro beat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, due to the razzmatazz, popularity and probably the gains that come with it. However, a critical look and accounts given by these children have sure shown being an offspring of Abami Eda is not really a roller coaster as there are lots of misconceptions that exposed them to undue criticism and other unpleasant things. What is clear however is that some of these children have been able to live above what ordinarily is meant to set them back as they have proven to the world they are actually champions in their own right.
While scion of the family, Femi has taken his music to a level where Nigerians are proud of him as their export, Seun is also not doing badly as singer even as the main subject of this piece, who is the first child of the family, Yeni, has also been blazing the trail. While Yeni has evolved to becoming a sound TV host, she had all along made sure she prepares a great future for herself in her only child, Rolari.
Yeni went through all it takes to ensure Rolari got a good education from UK University where she studied Computer Science and to the admiration of her mother , Rolari has since gone ahead to get married to her white man lover in a classy event back here in the country.
As you read, Yeni has been basking in the euphoria of the fact that she’s now a grandmother as her daughter, Rolari just put to bed in England where she resides. A co-host of ‘Your View’ on TVC, Yeni, took to her social media page to announce the arrival of the tiny feet. Yeni, it will be recalled was married to late Femi Segun with whom she had Rolari.
