I’m glad that Out Da Box got this interview poppin! As a huge fan of Fela (whose records I’ve been trying to track down, which proved very time and money consuming), I learned a little more insight on the Kuti empire and gained a new found respect for his son, Seun.

Out Da Box TV is proud to bring you a special new interview with Afrobeat Artist “Seun Anikulapo Kuti”. Seun is the youngest son of the Legendary Afrobeat Musician “Fela Kuti” and now performs with his Father’s well acclaimed Music Band known as “Fela’s Egypt 80”. We had the pleasure of speaking with Seun a few months ago when he made his recent tour stop in NY. In this interview, Seun takes the time to speak to us on a variety of topics, including, his mission for music, carrying on the legacy of his father, and his advice for how we as a people can achieve freedom, equality and justice. As the interview progresses “Seun” even talks to us about his view on today’s mainstream hip hop and further explains why he prefers to create his music out in the world and not in the studio. This was a very insightful interview
