With the successful release of his second album Rise in Europe last month and a simultaneous release in the United States and Nigeria slated for June 21st, Seun Anikulapo Kuti will be performing live with Fela’s Egypt 80 Band at the New Africa Shrine today.
Seun Kuti, who recently returned to the country after a musical tour of Europe, has promised to thrill Afro Beat Fans with tracks from his second album which he (Seun) said is better and richer than his previous albums.
The Afro-beat crown prince also assured that the Egypy 80 band will also entertain with some of the Fela’s unreleased songs spiced with heavy political commentaries on the state of the nation.
This month’s show is particularly different because as soon as Seun finishes his performance He’d be embarking on a three-month promotional tour of his second album next month.
The tour would take the band to the United States, Europe and Asia
