Bio

Femi Kuti, is a Nigerian musician and the eldest son of afrobeat pioneer Fela. Femi was born in London to Fela and Remi Kuti and grew up in Lagos. While still a teenager, he joined his fathers band at the age of 15,as a Saxophonist, performing and touring round the world.

His first album "No cause for alarm" was released in 1990. Followed by his breakthrough album in 1995 under the Tabu/Motown label. This was followed four years later by "Shoki Shoki" (MCA), which garnered widespread critical acclaim. In 2001 he collaborated with Common and Mos Def on Fight to Win, an effort to cross over to a mainstream audience, and started touring the United States with Jane’s Addiction.

In 2004 he opened The Shrine, his club, where he recorded the live album "Africa Shrine". After a 4-year absence due to personal setbacks, he re-emerged in 2008 with Day by Day and Africa for Africa in 2010, for which he received two Grammy nominations. In 2012 he was both inducted into the Headies Hall of Fame (the most prestigious music awards in Nigeria), was the opening act on the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ European arena tour and became an Ambassador for Amnesty International. He continues to expand the diversity of his artistry on his new album released in 2013- "No Place for My Dream".
