Activism and great grooves was on full blast as
The concert which held at the New Afrikan Shrine, Ikeja, Lagos, on February 25, 2018, had crowds gather for the concert as Femi celebrated his new project.
The Afrobeat legend has released his 10th studio album “One People One World”. The album which he has been working on for some years now is a new direction for the Afrobeat legend who says he has become more optimistic about the future of the African man.
In a recent interview with the Rolling Stone magazine, Kuti said the album's optimistic lyrical themes underscore the important way music can make politics personal and instigate social change. "I'm a father and I love my kids, so I want to give the younger generation a message of hope," he said. "Despite all our problems, we can create greatness in our lives."
Femi began a series of live performances of the album, with a commanding performance at the New Afrika Shrine. Backed by his band - Positive Force, Femi performed for over three hours, giving fans a live presentation of the 51-minute album, together with songs from his past projects. It was a three-hour performance, which also included the performance of Femi Kuti, holding a note on the Sax for 30 minutes.
He also gave his thoughts on the state of the country, and pled with all attendees to live a good life, and spread the message of goodwill.
The “One People One World” tour will hit other locations in the coming weeks according to his management company Chocolate City Group who says the plan is to take Femi Kuti’s brand of Afrobeat as close to fans of the legend as possible.
He and his band, Positive Force, recorded much of the album in Lagos and it is distributed in Nigeria on all major digital platforms by Chocolate City Music.
