Today, Femi Kuti and his son Made Kuti release Legacy +, a special two-album package that includes solo albums from each artist – Femi’s Stop The Hate and Made’s For(e)ward. The project has earned critical acclaim while Femi and Made proudly carry on Fela Kuti’s legacy as torchbearers for change.
Both albums that make up Legacy + are steeped in the tradition of Afrobeat invented by Fela Kuti (Femi’s father, and Made’s grandfather), but each also brings their own unique vision and sound. Stop The Hate honours Fela in a traditionally fun, sharply political, and affirming way. Meanwhile For(e)ward is a modern and progressive freedom manifesto, pushing boundaries of the sub-genre even further. Made also performs every instrument on his album.
