Yeni Kuti, the first daughter of Nigeria’s Afro Beat Legend, Fela Kuti has disclosed why she gave out her only daughter Rolari’s hand in marriage to British man, Benedict Jacka, instead of black man.
In a recent interview with Encomium, Yeni disclosed that what matters to her most in her daughters marriage is her happiness and not about the skin colour of the person involved.
According to her, “I am not a racist. I look at all people as equal. That is who she fell in love with. That is who she loves to marry. Her happiness is paramount to me. I am not after my own happiness, but hers. That is who makes me happy. I don’t see the colour.”
