The upcoming track, titled "Dey," will feature Seun Kuti's Egypt 80 alongside Damian Marley, promising a fusion of Afrobeat and reggae that is sure to resonate with fans across the globe.

The single set for release on June 26, 2024, comes ahead of Seun Kuti's new album which the Grammy-nominated Afrobeat star revealed will be executive-produced by American music icon Lenny Kravitz.

Seun Kuti has collaborated with several global stars including Janelle Monae in her Grammy Album of the Year nominated 'The Age of Pleasure'. His upcoming album can be expected to feature reputable artists from different parts of the world.
