Fulani Blood Following In My Vain, My Maternal Grandmother Was A FULANI, Femi Fani-Kayode

Femi Fani-Kayode had said his maternal great-grandmother was a pure Fulani woman precisely from Sokoto state.

Going deeper into his family genealogy, Fani-Kayode disclosed:

His father, that is my maternal great-grandfather, was a pure Yoruba man from Ilesha. However, his mother, that is my maternal great-grandmother, was a pure Fulani woman from Sokoto.

“My grandfather, Sheik Nurudeen Sa’ I’d, who was half Fulani and half Yoruba, got married to my grandmother, Alhaja Abeke Sa’ id (nee Williams), who was a pure Yoruba woman. She was also known as ”Mama Ofin”.

She was from Lagos (Isale Eko) and she was the daughter of Alhaji Isa Williams who was a key leader in the Muslim community and the richest businessman and trader in the whole of Lagos in his day.”
