Afrobeats pioneer musician, Fela Kuti’s first child, Yeni, has taken to social media to eulogise her late mother on the 20th anniversary of her death.
Taking to her verified Instagram page, the musician’s daughter took fans down memory lane with several throwback photos after admitting that she felt nostalgic.
Yeni explained that 20 years ago when her mother died feels just like yesterday as she posted old family photos which included her late mother carrying her now 33-year-old daughter when she was a baby, Fela, her late sister, her grandmother and more.
