When Nigerian Afrobeat superstar Fela Kuti died in 1997, his youngest son Seun was 14. Despite his age, he became the lead singer of his father’s band, Egypt 80. Seventeen years later, Seun is all grown up, and he has a new album out with Egypt 80 called A Long Way To The Beginning. It features this song, "IMF," with rapper M1 from the group Dead Prez.
