Yeni Kuti, the singer and dancer, says infidelity in marriage is not a “deal breaker” for her.


Speaking on Your View, a programme on Television Continental (TVC), Yeni said she can only leave her marriage “if I find out that my partner is sleeping with another man.”

Recounting her mother’s experience while married to Fela Kuti, the late Afrobeat icon, Yeni said her mum was not happy in the union yet she didn’t leave him.

She added that she would rather leave her marriage than cheat on her husband.


“For me, cheating is not a deal breaker and I always say it here. My father had 27 wives, my mother didn’t go,” she said.

“I’m not saying she was happy but she didn’t leave.

“It is not that my man will cheat and I will say I am going to cheat my own. If it comes to that, let me be going.


“So it’s very difficult for me. Everybody has their own deal breaker.

“My own deal breaker is if I find out that my own partner is sleeping with another man. That’s my deal breaker. They won’t even beg me. I will run. It is cheating but cheating get cheating.

“If you are cheating with a woman I can… But if you are cheating with a man, that one na deal breaker.”

Yeni is in a relationship with Theo Lawson.


In 2017, the TV host said she would not endure what her mother went through with Fela.
