Gatekeeper News reports that the ever-genetic mother and grandma, who is a co-host of a popular breakfast show ‘Your View’ also got a car gift from the fans of the TV show.

Yeni was born on May 24, 1961, in London, United Kingdom (UK) by Remilekun Anikulapo-Kuti (née Taylor), a British-born woman of Nigerian and African American heritage.

Yeni’s grandmother was Nigerian women’s rights activist Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti, the first Nigerian woman to drive a car.
