Femi Kuti performs at his Africa Shrine

This guy is a paradox. He's sweet and crazy in one goal. He says he's stopped smoking; which if true is a great thing. It was funny to hear the sister Yeni say her two favourite cities in the world are Paris and Amsterdam. She said " I love Paris for the clothes and Amsterdam for the smoke."

Femi strongly follows in the traditions of his father but in a far more modest style. His female dances are better clad, he appears to be a one-woman kinda man and his child's school gave him a certificate for being a responsible father. I hear he's as kind as his father was.

I just wish non-smokers will find his Shrine a bit more accommodating.
