Over the weekend, rumors of a Baba Kuboye and Femi Kuti collabo sparked after a photo of the two kicking it in the studio in Texas surfaced. Whether or not a new Baba Kuboye album is on its way is still in the air, but the Afrobeat luminary confirmed Kuboye’s hero is indeed working on new music with him.
“Right from days, keeping family tradition is not just on social issues but in music. The same way Fela Kuti used to jam at Jazz 38 (Baba’s parents’ franchise club from the 80’s) is the same way I am jamming with Baba Kuboye now.”, said Femi Kuti.
Baba Kuboye later added: “Well, I did some work with him for some stuff that would be released soon. I’m not really sure of the details of his personal project in that sense, but we worked on some music together. I’ve been a fan of his music since he started working with his Dad. We’ve never done any musical work together. So that was a joy to finally work together musically.”
We’re here for the hit.
Despite clues pointing to a possible collaboration, there’s no official proof that Femi Kuti’s 2018 Tour will end 16 of November as stated on Song Kick dot Com. On the other hand, Baba have been spotted in Nigeria, which probably means he’s in town for business.
