Fela was an icon but not a good father – Yeni Kuti


It is interesting to note Yeni Kuti's perspective on her father, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti. 


While she acknowledges that he was not a good father, she also recognizes his status as an icon and role model. 


It seems that Yeni's relationship with her father was not as confrontational as her brother Femi's, who was more willing to challenge Fela when he felt it was necessary. 


Yeni suggests that she and her sister Shola were more timid and less likely to speak out against their father. 


It is important to remember that Fela Anikulapo-Kuti was a complex figure, known for his musical genius and political activism, but also for his personal flaws and controversial behavior.
