Afrobeat prince, Seun Kuti will today lead the Egypt 80 Band to the New African Shrine for a Boxing Day live gig.
The show, which will see the multi-instrumentalist treat guests to some of his latest recordings, as well his old hits, will also feature some great tracks from the music legend himself, Fela Anikulapo Kuti. For sure, expect Seun to deliver some of his mind blowing political commentaries that set him aside from his peers.
For the artiste, who spends more time playing abroad, today’s show is very significant.
“The truth is that we play more abroad than we play in Nigeria; it’s funny, but that’s the reality. So, for me, this is an opportunity to perform for my fans back home,” he said.
Seun, who just returned to the country after a long music tour that took him to different parts of Europe, was part of the just concluded Lagos Jazz series, where he had the opportunity to play for Afrobeat fans, who are not regulars to the Shrine.
