Seun Kuti’s 2007 North American Tour

Seun Kuti begins his North American tour in June of 2007. Seun is Fela Anikulapo-Kuti‘s last son. Seun’s father, Fela Kuti, was Nigeria’s most beloved popular musician and most acerbic social critic until his death in 1997. Seun will be touring with the legendary Egypt 80. While Seun Kuti is the front man of the band, a star in his own right who is routinely recognized by fans on the streets of Lagos, in many ways Egypt 80 is still his father’s band.
