The family of late Nigerian music legend of all time, Fela Anikulapo Kuti will hit the United State of America (USA) with sounds of Afrobeat which many yearn for.

Grammy Award: The Kuti family is taking the Afrobeat legacy to the USFemi Kuti and his son, after 25 years of Fela’s death are up for a Grammy award.

The new double “Legacy” was nominated for a Grammy. The father and son duo are hoping to win in the Global Music category.

The 59 year-old Femi Kuti shared that; “It’s a joint release with my son, which makes it extra, extra special because of the collaboration with my son, him playing on my album because he played bass on my album, saxophone, and then being able to appreciate him doing his work, and then bringing the work out together, I think that was very special for me”.

The new album is divided into two parts; one for the father, the other for the son, who plays all the instruments on his section.

“Dealing with the legacy left by music legend Fela Kuti was the hardest part”.

“He has already stood firm to tell everybody, this is “Made Kuti and The Movement”, with his first album even. It took me years… Look (laughing) my life was miserable! And to find my feet in such chaos… because my father was huge! Now he has a huge grandfather, a huge father, and then to find himself immediately, that’s beautiful” added the son of music legend Fela Kuti.

Made Kuti, who is 26-years old admitted that Nigeria is a hotspot for creativity, hence the justification for other nominees from the country.

He said: “I really like some of the ideas of some musicians that are taking, going back culturally, and reintroducing the cultural sounds to the modern scene like The Cavemen with Highlife. Everything is wonderful, Nigeria is a hotspot for creativity, Lagos”.

Another contender for the Grammy is Nigerian afropop star Wizkid.

The new album is a powerful cocktail of repetitive and hypnotic High Life style, Yoruba polyrhythms, jazz and funk.
