Seun Kuti, a well-known artist from Nigeria, has finally replied to claims that he mistreats his wife Yetunde verbally and physically.
After a video of the Afrobeat artist ranting at his wife, Yetunde, after an encounter with a police officer went viral, there have recently been rumors that she may be a victim of domestic violence.
Yetunde is seen stepping out of the vehicle in the video, which went viral online a few weeks ago, in an effort to calm her husband down during the altercation with the cop on Third Mainland Bridge.
However, she immediately cooperated with Seun’s request to get back in the vehicle.

This sparked a flurry of reactions from social media users who speculated that Yetunde was afraid of her husband.
Addressing these speculations during a recent Instagram live session, Seun Kuti denied assaulting his wife.
He also debunked the notion that Yetunde is scared of him, stating that he is the one who is actually scared of her. He added that those who are familiar with his family could testify to this.
“The most important rumor I must dispel is the one that they said I’m beating my wife. They said I screamed at her to get into the car [in the viral video], and she went into the car… That she is scared of me. My wife is not scared of me. Trust me, if you know anybody that knows us, I’m the one that’s scared of my wife. But my wife respects me,” he explained.
