Olufela Olufemi Anikulapo Kuti (born 16 June 1962) is popularly known as Femi Kuti. He is a Nigerian musician born in London and raised in Lagos. He is the eldest son of afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti.
Femi’s musical career started when he began playing in his father’s band, Egypt 80.
In 1986, Femi started his own band, Positive Force. He began establishing himself as an artist independent of his father’s massive legacy. 🎷🎺🎸🎹🎤
Since then, he has continued playing the music style his father was famous for, i.e afrobeat. Afrobeat can be defined as ‘a complex fusion of:
- psychedelic rock
- traditional West African chants and rhythms.
Femi also follows his father’s legacy with his strong commitments to social and political causes. You can notice this in his songs’ lyrics on his website:
