Yeni Kuti may be the eldest daughter of the late Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti; but their famous name is yet to put millions in her pocket.

Her siblings are doing quite well in their careers, likewise her. She is not like the Fela boys who will not tolerate any government that is in competent but she is smart and also street wise.

She wished that Fela's name has made her richer "It has not put millions on my table. I wish it would. Well, you know Fela was an icon, so whether I do anything or not, people just respect the name and they also expect good things from me. People ask me, ‘Yeni, why don’t you go into politics?’ And I say the reason is that I don’t want to tarnish the good name my father left for us."

She said If I go into politics and I enter into all this Senate ‘chop chop’ and collecting big salaries, that would mean tarnishing the good name of my father. You know, his name has made us one with the man on the streets, so I prefer that world because the man on the street is the pulse of the nation."

She added "We are not in the elite group. These are the important things my father’s name has done for us; he made us to be part of the pulse of Nigeria. We feel the pain. I don’t live in Ikoyi or Victoria Island."
