Femi Kuti is a Nigerian musician born in London and raised in Lagos. He is the eldest son of afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti and a grandchild of political campaigner, women’s rights activist and traditional aristocrat Funmilayo Ransome Kuti.
Femi Kuti began his musical career playing in his father’s band, Egypt 80. In 1986, Femi started his own band, Positive Force, establishing himself as an artist independent of his father’s massive legacy. Femi Kuti carries forth the afrobeat legacy of his father blending Nigerian drums, the smooth grooves of highlife and American soul, funk and R&B, and bristling political statements. Femi has been busy recording a new original album with his son Made Kuti, and a first EP will arrive in Spring of 2020.
