Afrobeat's '2 Kings' Femi & Seun Kuti Speak On Their Concert & Dynasty

Afrobeat dynasty Femi and Seun Kuti speak on performing together at the '2Kings' concert in Lagos, Nigeria.


Tonight afrobeat dynasty Femi and Seun Kuti will hit the stage at the Eko Hotel and Suites in Lagos for the first time ever. With less than 24 hours to go before showtime, we asked the Kuti brothers for the inside scoop. And quite miraculously, they wrote back exactly at the same moment.

Okayafrica: What made you decide to play together now? How come you two hadn't ever played together previously?

Femi Kuti: We have played together before in Europe. And at the Shrine. But first time outside the Shrine in Nigeria. Seun asked me if I would do a show outside the Shrine with him. I said no problem.

Seun Kuti: Well I guess things just happen at the right time. I felt the time was ripe also for a concert like this.

Okayafrica: Will you perform any of your father's songs? If so, which ones?

Femi: Most likely we will perform "Water No Get Enemy."

Seun: I will as I always do on my set and probably do one with my brother after the show. We will probably do a classic like "Water" or something.

Okayafrica: What's your biggest similarity with your brother?

Femi: Lol I don't know maybe loving women LOL LOL

Seun: Our passion for our people.

Okayafrica: What's your biggest difference?

Femi: DIFFERENCE wow wouldn't want to say lol he might be offended lol.

Seun: Our age.

Okayafrica: What's your favorite song by your brother?

Femi: The song called many things.

Seun: "Inside Religion."
