'It wasn't really good to be Fela's child' – Yeni Kuti speaks about a ruined relationship

Nigerian media personality, Yeni Kuti, the first child of Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti, has recalled how being the daughter of the legendary musician once ruined her romantic relationship.

The famous dancer also narrated how a lady once broke up with her younger brother, Femi, after discovering that he was Fela's child.

She noted that a woman she was dating her son also yelled at her and warned her not to destroy her son's life.

She said: 'Femi had a girlfriend and they knew straight away that he was Fela's son, they broke off the relationship. A girl warned my cousin never to introduce her to such a person (Fela's family).

“People didn't want to know us because he (Fela) was in and out of prison at the time. However, I can say that being Fela's child then and now are two completely different things. Back then, being Fela's kid wasn't really a good thing, which I didn't care about, but now it's a good thing. We have gone through a phase.
