Biography

Seun Kuti is the son of Fela Kuti, one of Africa’s greatest musician and the originator of Afrobeat.

3.0 out of 5 stars Seun's attempt June 18, 2008
Format:MP3 Music
Seun's attempt is truly very inspiring and a positive revelation of all the effort he's put into his music since his father's demise. Seun however could have expanded the house rather than move two doors away from his father's bedroom. The works all reek of an attempt to mimic Fela's genius. No offense intended but this could be way more instrumentally and lyrically creative. This I say because Seun is obviously endowed with the potential to be authentically creative. The truth could be unveiled by Seun's acceptance that he requires an artistic pilgrimage that'll be devoid of all the trappings and privileges of staid (though innocently conferred) Africa 70 comfort expressed either in Baba Ani's fatherly oversight or Show boys' subservient presence. Seun will greatly benefit from a departure from Nigeria on a self defining mission of enlightening musical adventure. He then can acquire building blocks with which to erect a more contemporary idiom on the foundation Baba left as his legacy. Seun's genius begs expression as we're yet to experience ego allowing truth to have its way.
