Stage 1: Saturday 7th March 2009 10pm

   Seen a few nasty diatribes against this guy which allege he is trading on Fela Kuti's legacy . Perhaps there is something in that, but I think, as in the case of Dweezil Zappa, if the son can present the work with integrity , respect and love, then that does not diminish the music . I my opinion Seun is successful . Its better that a family member carries on the body of work rather than it fall into obscurity . Overall I found this a very strong set , the band was a real powerhouse , Fela was energetic and commanding and whilst he might not have the stature of a Baba Maal , he is certainly more than capable of presenting his fathers music to a live audience .
