Finding a corrupt Nigerian government official is easy; finding a musician willing to criticize him is a little more difficult. When that musician is the youngest son of Fela Anikulapo Kuti, we can't help but take notice. Seun Kuti, the heir apparent to His Royal Highness of Bad, makes a rare (and free) North American appearance fronting the Egypt 80, many of whose members (including Seun’s mother) were in Fela's original band.
