THE QUEEN IS 60! OMOYENI KUTI, THE BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER OF FELA IS 60
Today is Omoyeni Kuti’s birthday. The ‘your view’ presenter turns 60 today. Many may wonder who the beautiful woman who used to lead Femi Anikulapo Kuti’s dancers was, it was no other than Yeni Kuti, sister to Femi Kuti. She left her Fashion designing business to join Femi Kuti’s band.
Yeni, who attended Nigerian institute of Journalism in 1986 is a force to reckon with in the Afrobeat game and Afro pop culture that reigns in Africa. She influenced Femi Kuti’s saxophone rendition in Wizkid’s track ‘Jaye Jaye’. We say happy Birthday to the Queen.
