Media personality and elder sister of Nigerian singer Femi Kuti, Yeni Kuti, has revealed why the singer’s ex-wife, Funke, left him.
Speaking in a recent chat with media personality Chude Jideonwo, Yeni revealed Funke walked out of the marriage due to a “communication breakdown.”
She noted that Funke regretted her decision, as she later admitted that if she had known what she knows now, she probably wouldn’t have divorced the singer.
“I think the divorce between Femi and Funke was a result of a communication breakdown. Even now, Funke says that if she had known then what she knows now, she probably wouldn’t have left the marriage. So, I believe it was a communication breakdown.”
“You know, our people can be quite malicious. If they see something good, their focus becomes how to bring it down. Many people have been advising her. Just like me, people say, ‘Why are you still dancing for your brother? Go and form your own band.’ Which band do I want to form? Did I ever come to you saying I want to form a band?” Yeni said.
Just recently, Yeni Kuti revealed that she can’t leave her husband over infidelity.
Yeni, who lost her husband, Femi Segun, to the cold hands of death in 2014, said she would not leave her partner because he cheated on her.
She said that is her personal choice and she shouldn’t be judged for choosing to stay with an unfaithful man.
Speaking further, Yeni said her father, late legendary Afrobeat singer Fela Aníkúlápó Kuti, had 27 wives and her mother did not divorce him, therefore she also can’t leave her partner because of another woman.
