In an interview with Yourviewtvc, Yetunde reveals her family’s concerns and misconceptions.
The singer’s wife, shared that despite her family’s reservations about her marrying Seun Kuti, she defied their warnings and married the singer.

Despite the warnings, Yetunde emphasized that she chose to challenge societal stereotypes and misconceptions surrounding marriage.
In her words;
I have always had the idea of not wanting to be married, and my family was expecting me not to get married, especially to Seun. I grew up with people whose marriages were not stable and looked at it from their perspective, and I realized that everybody has their own reasons why their marriages didn’t work, and people can’t just continue like that.”
“There’s a sacrifice that one has to make, but some people don’t want to make the sacrifice. My family said my life would end if I married Seun Kuti and that I would just be one of his 35 wives. They said his father married many wives and that he would marry more than him.”
