Seun Kuti is the son of Fela Kuti, one of Africa's greatest musicians and the originator of Afrobeat. With the same energetic and booming voice as Fela, Seun has developed his own raging rhythm, citing Chuck D, Dr. Dre and Eminem among his other musical heroes. Seun started learning to play saxophone and piano when he was 8, and first appeared on stage at 9 as the opening act with his father's band, Egypt 80. His songs are arrows that never miss their targets: the corrupt, the bribers and the oppressors. TICKETS ON SALE NOW!
