Reviews of the Seun Kuti live shows with Egypt 80 in North America have been very good, with reviewers again welcoming the arrival of a massive Afro-Beat band led by the son of the iconic Fela Kuti (not that anyone has forgotten his other son Femi yet). “The band was the most important thing in my father’s life,” says his youngest son Seun. “I didn’t want it to die.” Seun seems a bit overwhelmed by the response, or a little mis-informed. “Before my father’s death, it was only (Africans) who listened to Afro beat, but right now it is a global phenomenon,” he told AFP. Really?Â I’m sure I’m not the only that attended Fela’s concerts in major venues across the globe.
