Made Kuti, the son of Femi Kuti, the Afrobeat singer, is set to stage his second solo music event.
Made, who is a grandson of Fela Kuti, the late Afrobeat legend, earlier had his debut headline gig at The New African Shrine after ‘Legacy Plus’, the joint album with his dad.
The musician will, however, be setting up a special showcase event tagged ‘An Evening With Made Kuti.’
Organisers of the music event, in a statement sent to TheCable Lifestyle, said the exclusive event is scheduled for Friday, July 2 at the fit-for-purpose Terra Culture Arena in Victoria Island, Lagos state.
For his second solo headline gig, it is understood that Made will be introducing The Movement, his band, to a colourful audience comprising his growing young army of fans, music connoisseurs, brands, diplomats, among others.
Speaking on the forthcoming music event, Made said: “The aim is to extend my performance beyond the New Afrika Shrine and create opportunities for new fans and brands alike to experience my art.
“This special showcase creates high-quality engagements and reaches an audience composed of young adults, business professionals, and expatriates who enjoy Afrobeat and support the Kuti legacy.”
Made has the talent of his grandfather. He’s a multi-instrumentalist (bass, saxophone, piano, drums, and trumpet). He has toured the world under his father’s band and attended the prestigious Trinity College in London.
In his joint album with Femi, Made unraveled his sound in ‘For(e)ward’, his side of the two-part studio project.
