Afrobeat maestro Seun Kuti has boasted about leading the most successful band in the African continent...READ THE FULL STORY HERE▶

The son of the legendary Fela Kuti who spoke in a recent interview with City 105.1 FM hinted at not being afraid to make such claims.

According to Seun Kuti, his foremost band failed to get a Grammy nomination when he was nominated despite it being the most successful in Africa.

While sharing that the Egypt 80 band, which he inherited from his late father, has released 54 albums, he added that the musical group ought to be given national recognition to remain in the psyche of African people across the globe.

I won’t stop speaking my mind because I’m no longer afraid of anything you’re going to do. What are you going to do? You’re not going to play my videos? Are you not already doing this? So what are you going to do?

“Even when I got nominated for the Grammys, no award organization in the whole of Africa nominated my band in any category, knowing fully well that no matter what anybody says about me, I, Seun, am the frontman for Africa’s most successful band. 54 albums. By the time I drop my next album, it will be 55 albums.

“The band that I lead is an African musical institution. If we knew what we were doing in Africa, it would go without saying that this band should be given some kind of national recognition to keep them in the forefront of the psyche of African people all over the world, to know that Africans can achieve institutions like this. But well, that is for an African who knows what he’s doing.” he said.
