Nigeria’s king of Afro Beat, Femi Anikulapo-Kuti, has thrown his weight behind the Black REALvolution day coming up on Friday, 28 March.

The multiple Grammy-nominated artiste described the BlackREALvolution movement as a non-partisan, peace advocating, group of individuals, who jointly seek an end to oppressions emanating from governments and organisations with suppressive tendencies.

“I lend my voice to the Blackrealvolution movement. Even though I am one of Africa’s most respected and notable musicians, I have thrown my weight behind struggles which seek to support the masses and the down-trodden of the society,” Kuti said.

Expatiating on his support for the movement, the Afrobeat king said: “I have always advocated non-violence and peace. Music is my only weapon and it is my medium of support for the BlackREALvolution movement. Music is a universal language capable of soothing frayed nerves. It can also be used to arouse consciousness of any kind – be it economic, social, political or cultural.”

Kuti invited Nigerians to the first ever gathering of the BlackREALvolution movement which will hold at the Eko Atlantic city, Victoria Island, Lagos.
