Femi Kuti and Made Kuti announce two-album project ‘Legacy +’

The two records will be arriving on 5th February.

The legendary Fela Kuti’s son Femi and grandson Made have today announced that on February 5th they’ll be sharing two new albums, packaged together and appropriately titled ‘Legacy +’.

Femi says, “I am very excited and happy because as a father I get to perform with my son on my album again, and I get to see him compose, arrange, and play all instruments on his own album. Most importantly, we get to release this project together. It is spiritually soothing and comforting to witness this chapter in my life.”

Made adds, “I truly believe that once in a while we are fortunate enough to write stories for ourselves that we can look back on much later in our lives. This has been one of the greatest positive highlights of my life so far, both musically and transcendently. I’ve learnt so much from my father politically, socially, philosophically and musically that I know this lovely project is only the beginning of more beautiful things to come.”
