At age 55, Yeni, eldest child of the late Afrobeat icon, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, is about to join the married women forum.
Her long time fiancé, Theo Lawson, finally proposed marriage to her few days ago.
The romantic proposal took place when veteran journalist, Mallam Abdul Okwechime and Akin Adeoya, CEO, Prince of Anthony Hotel, organised a surprise 55th birthday party for Yeni.
The event, which witnessed an impromptu performance by Yeni’s younger brother, Femi Kuti on stage, started at 7pm with an emotional outburst from the celebrant upon walking into a hall filled with friends and family members waiting to sing her a happy birthday song.The icing on the cake of the birthday party was when Lawson went on bended knees and in measured tones proposed marriage to Yeni.
Still dazed by the entire event, Yeni said: “I am still in a shock.”
