Seun Kuti’s wife, Yetunde, shares their love story, revealing how their relationship blossomed despite initial challenges. As guests on the TVC show “Your View,” the couple reminisced about their journey. Yetunde fondly recalled her days as Seun’s backup dancer when they rarely interacted due to their age gap. However, fate intervened, bringing them closer through mutual connections in the dance scene.
Yetunde humorously recounted Seun’s interest in her, admitting that they were both intrigued by each other. Despite growing feelings, she decided to keep her distance as Seun was in a relationship at the time. Reflecting on those moments, Yetunde confessed feeling overwhelmed by Seun’s charm and success, leading her to play hard to get, especially as she was involved with someone else.
Seun, on the other hand, revealed his surprise upon discovering Yetunde reservations, unaware of her own romantic entanglements. Despite the initial hurdles, their affection for each other eventually prevailed. In 2020, they formalized their union after welcoming a child and sharing a life together.
