Kuti is the new voice in Afrobeat and he is taking up where is father, Fela Kuti, left off. The new CD is produced by Brian Eno, John Reynolds and Kuti himself (additional production was provided by Godwin Logie). Egypt 80, who also backed his father, still features Lekan Animashaun on alto saxophone (and as band leader). Kuti should be accustomed to playing with Egypt 80—he first did so at the age of nine.
There will be a North American tour and dates are coming soon. These are shows you need to get to.
