Throughout his career, Seun Kuti has released several acclaimed albums, including the Grammy-nominated “Black Times.” Beyond his music, Seun is a dedicated pan-African activist, involved in numerous campaigns such as the #EndSARS movement against police brutality in Nigeria. By reviving the Movement of the People (M.O.P.), his father’s political party, Seun continues to champion social justice and political activism. This new album, in collaboration with Lenny Kravitz and Sodi Marciszewer, is set to be another significant contribution to his illustrious career and the Afrobeat genre.
