Funmilayo Kuti (1900-1978) was a teacher, political campaigner, and founder of the Nigerian Women’s Union. Funmilayo was the mother of Afrobeat musician and political activist Fela Kuti. As one of the most prominent leaders of her generation, it is no surprise that she was the first Nigerian woman to drive a car and ride a motorcycle.
