Must Read

Oluseun Kuti, popularly known as Seun Kuti, the youngest son of Afrobeats pioneer Fela Kuti, has announced the release of a single from his yet to be released album.

The single features Damian Marley, the son of legendary reggae pioneer Bob Marley, a four-time Grammy Award-winning artist. Seun’s Egypt 80 will be on the track.

This is the first time that the Kutis and the Marleys collaborate together on a musical album. Damian, who released “Wisemen,” his first solo release of 2024 on June 19, is the only child of Marley and Cindy Breakspeare, a Jamaican jazz singer crowned Miss World in 1976.

In an Instagram post, Seun said, “I am so honored to announce our first single, DEY, featuring a great brother, Damian Marley.”

The collaboration of these two on this song will be more of a revised contemporary reincarnation of Fela and Bob Marley in one song.

The title of the song also arouses curiosity. “Dey” in Nigerian vernacular English means to stay. Fans don’t know what to expect from both artists, but the fusion of Afro Highlife and Reggae will create an exciting collaboration.
