Afrobeat musician Femi and sister Yeni Kuti are currently mourning the passing away of their grandmother.
Their maternal grandmother, fondly referred to as Nanny, died at the age of 94.
“My Maternal Grandmother, who changed my life, by talking sense into me changing my whole attitude positively. Will miss u thanks for the LOVE and CARE (RIP) u will always be in my heart of hearts,” Femi wrote on Instagram.
Although not much is known about Femi’s maternal grandmother, the afrobeat star noted the late grandmother played a significant role in his life.
Femi’s paternal grandmother was Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti, a highly influential woman in her time who is best known for her activism and also for being the first Nigerian female to drive a car.
