The project has earned critical acclaim while Femi and Made proudly carry on Fela Kuti’s legacy as torchbearers for change.

To celebrate the release, Femi has shared a music video for ‘Stop The Hate’ highlight “As We Struggle Everyday” (filmed by Optimus Dammy, edited by Audrey Hurtis, with illustrations by Kiki Picasso).

Both albums that make up ‘Legacy +’ are steeped in the tradition of Afrobeat invented by Fela Kuti (Femi’s father, and Made’s grandfather), but each also brings their own unique vision and sound.

Stop The Hate‘ honors Fela in a traditionally fun, sharply political, and affirming way.

Meanwhile ‘For(e)ward’ is a modern and progressive freedom manifesto, pushing boundaries of the sub-genre even further. Made also performs every instrument on his album!

With every song (including Free Your Mind) different from the next and every arrangement journeying into a different sound universe there’s something there for almost everyone. Stream the legacy albums made by Femi and Made Kuti below.
