Afrobeat legend, Femi Kuti and his first son Made, have teamed up for a joint show tagged, “Father & Son: The Experience”.
“Father & Son: The Experience” is the first concert that will be co-headlined by Femi and Made.
Funke Kuti, Chief Executive Officer of the FK Management – the company behind the show, made the disclosure in Lagos on Saturday.
Kuti said this was coming many weeks after the father and son’s Grammy nomination experience for their joint album, “Legacy+”.
According to her, both father and son are gearing up for the joint concert with a promise to leave fans asking for more.
”It has become a usual feature in recent times to see a feature of Made on a Femi Kuti set while the latter is on tour, and Femi has also featured in all Made’s concerts in and outside the New Afrika Shrine.
”This concert will be their first co-headlined show since their joint Grammy Nominations.
”A show that seeks to bring to the home of Afrobeat the old and the newly converted followers of Afrobeat,” she said.
Kuti noted that the concert was scheduled to hold at the new Afrika Shrine on June 5, 2022.
Omorinmade Kuti, is the grandson of Afrobeat legend Olufela Anikulapo Kuti, while his father, Femi, is the first son of the late Afrobeat legend.
Made has been performing alongside his father since he was a young boy but began featuring at his father’s performances after completing his education at Trinity Laban Conservatoire, London.
He has gone ahead to release his debut album, “For(e)word” in February 2021 alongside his father’s “Stop the Hate” album to make up the Grammy-nominated album, “Legacy+”
