Afrobeat is about to switch home base.

Oluseun Anikulapo Kuti commonly known as Seun Kuti, is a Nigerian musician.

The youngest son of legendary afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti.

Seun leads his father’s former band Egypt 80.

At the age of nine Seun expressed the wish to sing to his father. A short while later Seun started performing with his father and the band. Since then, Seun has followed the political and social ethos of his father.

After Fela had died in 1997, Seun, then only 14 years old, became the lead singer of Egypt 80.

While in school Seun had to choose between a career in music and one in African football. His 2008 debut album, Many Things, was produced by Martin Meissonnier, who had already produced two albums for his father.

About three-quarters of the current Egypt 80 line-up consists of musicians that not only played with Fela Kuti, but often were arrested and harassed alongside the founder of the Afrobeat movement. Live sets consist of both new material and originals from Seun’s father.

Afrobeat is about to switch home base.

Seun Kuti, like many other Nigerians has reacted to Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu’s move as he considers growing Marijuana for commercial purpose in the state.

The state governor who is currently in Thailand to understudy the process, got alot of Nigerians excited when he announed his plans for marijuana on social media yesterday.

Seun Kuti in his reaction said, ‘ehn Mr excellency sir, if u want me to move to your state, just say so. This beating about the bush is unnecessary. Afrobeat is about to switch home base y’all. Just imagine one good joint for my back ache then better Ondo pounded yam to heal my stomach pain’.
