Why my brother, Femi’s ex-wife divorced him – Yeni Kuti. Yeni Kuti, popular media personality and elder sister of Grammy-nominated afrobeat musician, Femi Kuti, has revealed why the singer’s ex-wife, Funke, left the singer.
She said Funke walked out of the marriage because of “communication breakdown.”
She disclosed this in a chat with media personality, Chude Jideonwo.
Yeni said Funke regretted her action as she later said if she had known what she knows now, she probably wouldn’t have divorced the singer.
She said, “I think [Femi and Funke’s divorce was a result of] a communication breakdown. Because Funke even now says if she had known then what she knows now, she probably wouldn’t have left the marriage. So, I think it was a communication breakdown.
“You know, you need to know our people, our people, we can be very devilish. If you see something that is good, it’s how you will bring it down that you will now focused on.
“So, a lot of people have been talking to her. It’s just like me, people are saying, ‘Why are you still dancing for your brother? Go and form your own band.’ Which band do I want to form? Did I ever come and meet you that I want to form a band?”
