Afrobeat legend Femi Kuti is an artist who seemingly never stops, bringing his dynamic and colourful shows and committed political messages to audiences across the world.

In 2021 he released the double album Legacy + on Partisan Records. This box set contains his latest album Stop The Hate together with the very first album For (e) ward from his eldest son, Made Kuti.

Stop The Hate radiates the unique afrobeat sound that Femi has forged throughout his long career, affirming his sharply political convictions. The song PaPaPa and this album received rave reviews from the most cutting edge and prestigious international media, and was nominated at the 2022 Grammy Awards.

It can sometimes be difficult to understand where he draws his energy as the countless fights for social justice he carries out are exhausting. Femi Kuti is a global citizen who has been a defender of good causes for decades – the recently broadcast concert from his The New Afrika Shrine was a brilliant highlight of this.

Femi is widely in demand for many collaborations, and has worked with Coldplay, the electro music producer Robert Hood, or the French hip-hop band IAM.

So join us as Femi and his troupe, The Positive Force bring their new show to the UK, promoting Africa at its best and promising spicy performances, full of surprises!
