Legendary Afro-beat singer, Femi Kuti has finally released his 10th studio album ‘One People One World’ today. According to the Afro-beat icon, the album is a result of his optimism about the future of an average African man.
While speaking in interview with Rolling Stone Magazine, Femi Kuti said;
“I’m a father and I love my kids, so I want to give the younger generation a message of hope. Despite all our problems, we can create greatness in our lives.”
“Na their way be that” and “One People One World” are two singles off the album that has been released prior to this day and have been enjoying positive reviews from fans as well as huge airplays on radio stations across the country.
A part of the album review by British Arts Journalism website, The Arts Desk reads;
“This fiery 50-minute rant against the greedy and corrupt has more than enough to satisfy both the head and the hips”
Femi begins a series of live performances of the album this Sunday with a command performance at the New Afrika Shrine, Lagos and the “One People One World” tour will hit other locations in the coming weeks according to his management company Chocolate City Group who say the plan is to take Femi Kuti’s brand of Afro-beat as close to fans of the legend as possible.
He and his band, Positive Force, recorded much of the album in Lagos and it is distributed in Nigeria on all major digital platforms by Chocolate City Music.
