The wife of Nigerian singer, Seun Kuti, Yetunde Kuti, has revealed what her family told her when she decided to be married.
She stated in a video broadcast by TVC Entertainment that her family had told her that if she married Seun Kuti, her life would end and she would become just one of his 35 wives.
She went on to say that her family’s opinion of her husband, Seun Kuti, was that way because of how many wives his father, Fela Kuti had married.
In her words; “I have always had the idea of not wanting to be married, and my family was expecting me not to get married, especially to Seun. I grew up with people whose marriages were not stable and looked at it from their perspective, and I realised that everybody has their own reasons why their marriages didn’t work, and people can’t just continue like that.
There’s a sacrifice that one has to make, but some people don’t want to make the sacrifice. My family said my life would end if I married Seun Kuti and that I would just be one of his 35 wives. They said his father married many wives and that he would marry more than him.”
