Fela Kuti’s grand daughter and her Russian beau treated family and friends to an elegantly simple wedding on Saturday, August 15, 2015, in the city of London, the United Kingdom. With church service at All Saints, Margaret Street, and reception in a private house in Kilburn (both in London), the adored Kuti family, the Seguns, Soyinkas, Jackas and many more rejoiced with Rolari Femi Segun and Benedict Jacka as they exchanged vows of love and amity.
We counted among the attendees Yeni Kuti (the bride’s mother) and Theo Lawson, Femi Kuti and Funke Kuti and their son Made, Bisi Femi Segun, Rolari’s step mother, Ilemakin Soyinka, Ore Kuboye, Shalewa Kuti, Femi and Regina Odugbemi, Dapo Mukoro, Sanzye, Funmi Ransome Kuti and Segun Bucknor. Gbenga Segun gave Rolari away (as her father, Femi Segun passed on last year).
Devoid of excessive flamboyance, the classy event had less than a hundred guests.
