Check out this insightful interview by AfroPop with Fela Kuti‘s youngest son Seun Kuti.
“In late December, 2009, Seun Kuti came to New York City to see the Broadway show FELA!, which presents the life of his late father, Fela Anikulapo Kuti. Seun now leads his fathers band, Egypt 80, and along with his older brother Femi, carries Felas torch for a new generation of Nigerians. Afropop was curious to know how Seun felt about seeing Felas life laid out on a New York stage. Seun knows as well as anyone that Fela himself was extremely protective about his art and image. In this exclusive interview, Afropops Banning Eyre, Sean Barlow, and Matt Payne spoke at length with Seun in his hotel room, and the conversation roamed well beyond the subject of FELA! on Broadway, to Seuns plans for a second CD, and even his opinions about films, Hollywood, Nollywood, and even Bollywood.”
