I Can’t Marry My Present Lover Of 7years—Yeni Kuti


Daughter of late Afro beat legend, Fela Kuti, Yeni, says getting married to a man now will be a big problem to her.

The 53 years old TV analyst said though she is presently in a relationship with a man for about seven years now, but it might not lead to marriage because she is not interested in it.

Yeni explained that she is satisfied with her way of life because she can go out to functions without the company of a man.

According to her, “I am not single. I have somebody in my life. We have been together for like seven years. We respect each other. But we are not married. I believe that if we ever marry, our relationship will lose the dynamics that we have. I have my house. He has his house. He stays at mine when he wants; I stay at his when I want. It’s a kind of loose arrangement. 

“We go on holiday together. We love each other. But the day we marry, we would now start fighting for space. By the time I bring all my clothes and shoes where would he keep them. This way I think it works. He respects the fact that I don’t want to get married.”

“I know a guy who advised me to marry the man I am dating right now, but most people don’t seem to get the point. I don’t want to get married. I am happy the way I am. I am proud of who I am. I don’t need a man to say I am somebody. I can be who I am without a man. I don’t need a man as a prop to survive. If I am with a man, I am with him because I love him, because of who he is,” she narrates. 

“Not because I can’t go to an event alone, or go without a man. I can go to an event alone and enjoy myself, I will sit by myself, carry my Ipad and start checking my mails, I don’t need any props. I guess that’s why I have been able to stay single,” she added.
