“My family said I will be one of his 35 wives”

The wife of Nigerian musician Seun Kuti, Yetunde Kuti, has disclosed what her family told her at the time of her marriage decision.

In a video released by TVC Entertainment, she revealed that, in an interactive segment on the show Yourviewtvc, her relatives had informed her that, should she marry Seun Kuti, her life would end and that she would become just one of his 35 wives.

She added that her family had that perception about her husband Seun Kuti because of the number of wives his father, Fela Kuti married.

In her words, she said, “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 realized 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.”
