Seun Kuti live on stage tomorrow
Afrobeat musician Seun Kuti will tomorrow lead the Egypt 80 Band to the New Africa Shrine, Ikeja Lagos, for their monthly gig. The all night gig, which starts from 9pm, will see the band treat guests to the best of Afrobeat music. As usual, Seun will play both his personal recordings, as well as popular tracks by his late father, Fela.
“We wanted to create a platform for our fans back home to have the opportunity of watching us play live. If you observe well, we play more shows abroad than here in Nigeria, even in Africa. As much as we are open to playing gigs in Nigeria, the reality is that we get more concerts abroad. So, to ensure our home fans are not left out, we decided to have this monthly gig. So far, it’s been nice,” Seun Said.
From all indication, playing at home has become a major concern for Seun and the band.
“Afrobeat is a music from Nigeria, so, it’s natural that we find space to play here. What we’ve done is to ensure the tours don’t clash with our monthly show, which holds every last Saturday of the month. Even when we are on tour, we usually break to play at home,” he explained.
