Although his absence nearly marred the show held at the Central Park, New York, Kuti said other members of the group salvaged the situation.

“My bassist Aghedo Andrew nearly ruined my concert yesterday in New York,” Femi Kuti said in an Instagram post on Monday.

“He disappeared (absconded) 20mins before show time. I want to thank the rest of the band for standing strong and giving one of the best shows of the tour.”

The band is currently on “One People, One World” global tour which is aimed at promoting his latest of the same title.
