Seun Kuti, Nigeria’s Afrobeat singer and son of the Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti, would be performing at the 2020 edition of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival alongside his Egypt ’80, his late father’s band.
Organizers of the annual event, on Friday, released the full list of the global artistes billed to perform at the two weekends event as well as its headliners for the 2020 edition.
Last year, Burna Boy and Mr Eazi gave memorable performances at the festival. While Kuti emerged as the only Nigerian on this year’s lineup to take the international stage alongside their global peers.
Seun, whose album was nominated for Grammy 2019 took to his Instagram page to announce the news with a clip from his performance eight years ago as the first Nigerian artiste to perform at the festival.
He wrote, “Coachella 2020 announced and We are going going back back to Cali Cali!!
