Fela’s daughter, Yeni cries out over stolen family photo

The daughter of legendary Afrobeat singer, Fela Anikalapo-Kuti, Yeni Anikalapo has taken to social media to lament over an important family photo that has been stolen.

According to Yeni, the family photo was stolen by some unscrupulous people. She stated that she sees her family photo on social media always but the one who stole the photo has refused to return the photo to the rightful owners.

“It saddens me that they now post them on social media without returning them to the rightful owners. They are our memories that I would have gladly shared or put in our museums but now denied that opportunity”.

Listing those in the picture from left to right, Yeni wrote: “Auntie Dolu (Fela’s Sister) holding her son Yomi Ogundipe , Granny (The lioness of Lisabi) our grandmother. Uncle Koye (The most Honourable minister of health to date) in my opinion o!!!and his first son Dotun.
