Why have I never talked about Seun Kuti? Wow.
He’s the son of Fela Kuti and he’s continuing the Afrobeat tradition of his father. He’s got two CDs up his sleeve and the second, from last year, was produced by Brian Eno. And third, his lyrics are very political and he’s one of the voices of the Occupy Nigeria movement right now. Read more here: “Now, people are awake”. Oh, and fourth, he’s really hot. lol
Get the last album - “From Africa with Fury: Rise” (2011), here.
One of my favourite Seun Kuti songs, from the first album, Many Things. Actually, I might just prefer the first album a little bit better. It’s less produced, more raw. It was released on Tôt ou Tard, a French record label that also included Lhasa (and Têtes Raides, Mathieu Boogaerts, Yael Naim, etc etc)
