“I knew I never wanted to be just like my father,” exclaims Femi, “I was being groomed to be like my father, even in the way I dressed. That wasn’t what I wanted. I needed something more challenging. I wanted to break away.” Femi Kuti will also tour this Summer for the album, tour dates are forthcoming.
