“Remove My Grandmother’s Face From N5,000 Note” – Seun Kuti

Seun Kuti, grandson of Funmilayo Kuti, one of the women whose pictures have been approved to appear on the proposed N5,000 note, yesterday said his grandmother would not approve of the image, if she were still alive.

Kuti, who is a musician, spoke while appearing on a television programme.

He said: “I do not have the power to stop the government from printing the note but I would want the government to remove my grandma’s face from the so-called note.”

According to him, the Federal Government did not officially inform the Kuti family of the intended action.

He said: “It was through the radio that we got to know that her face would be used…we were not officially contacted.”
