Seun Kuti & Egypt 80

The crown prince of Afrobeat Seun Kuti heads off on a UK tour ahead of the release of his album Black Times, featuring artists including Carlos Santana, Yasiin Bey and Hiatus Kaiyote’s Nai Palm.

A true renegade and champion of Afrobeat music. As the youngest son of the legendary Fela Kuti and leader of his band Egypt 80, Seun Kuti is the true heir to his father's afrobeat legacy

Seun Kuti is the youngest son of legendary Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti. At the age of nine, Seun expressed the wish to sing to his father. A short while later Seun started performing with Fela and the band, until his father’s untimely death in 1997. Seun, then only 14 years old, assumed the role as lead singer of Egypt 80.

Ever since, Seun has followed the political and social ethos of his father. Along the way, he began to add his own twist to the music, digging deep into various African traditions to reflect the continent’s struggles and cultures.

About three quarters of the current Egypt 80 line-up consists of musicians that not only played with Fela Kuti, but often were arrested and harassed alongside the founder of the Afrobeat movement.
