Seun Kuti

Really tired today for some reason. It was a good and productive Saturday that much I can tell you. I went to see that really weird movie "The Happening" and yup with a weird name like that it was somewhat happening. To be honest, M. Night Shyamalan is a disturbed man. I really don't know where he gets his inspiration or lack of from.

Am I being harsh?

Some of you might have already guessed, this is Seun Kuti.

he sure does look like his dad dont he? Very grainy photograph though jide.
Jide Alakija: Thanks....It's grainy because I pushed the exposure by quite a bit. I do like the effort.

Brilliant shot, well captured. He even has Fela's stage traits and mannerisms.

I saw him on stage with Fela at the Brixton Academy in 1991, when he came on and did a couple of songs. And it was clearly evident he was destined to follow in Fela's musical footsteps.

I tried in vain to contact someone from he's troop in 2006, while on tour, as I would have loved to have done some pics.
