Modcast #116: Seun Kuti

The surname Kuti turns a lot of heads. From the late Nigerian afrobeat legend Fela Kuti to his sons Femi and Seun, the Kuti family have made a lot of noise for many years.

Lucky for us, this week Seun Kuti curates the 116th edition of the Modcast. Tracklist, tour dates and more information after the jump.

Seun (full name Oluseun Anikulapo Kuti) took over as frontman of Egypt 80 after his father passed away when he was just 14, forgoing a professional football career in the process. He is currently in and around Coachella performing with Egypt 80.
