My grandmum would have rejected her face on new N5000 note – Seun Kuti

Seun Kuti's late grandma, political activist and doyen of female rights in Nigeria, Mrs Funmiayo Kuti, is one of the women whose face has been approved to appear on the proposed new N5, 000 bill, but in a Google+ hangout with Channels TV, the afrobeat musician said he doesn't think his grandma would have approved of her image being used on the note. 

Putting her face on a note is a real honour and a great way to immortalize a great woman. But I respect how Seun feels!
