Watch Afrobeat master Femi Kuti speaking openly about his persecution by Lagos authorities who shut down his legendary club The Shrine for a few weeks in June 2009, about his agitator folk-hero father Fela Kuti who invented Afrobeat, and about Femi's hopes for establishing a more advancing touring culture in Africa to bring bands from all over the world.

"By the time you come everyone will want to say what was your experience like you will not even be able to explain," Femi says. "Different cultures, different people, different languages. That band will be a changed band. That band will get inspiration to propel itself and probably its society for better things in the future."
