Femi Kuti has released his 10th album titled “One People, One World.”
The new LP is released today, February 23, 2018, via his record label, Knitting Records.
The whole project comes from a depth that Femi believes should inspire the younger generation in areas that will instigate social change positively. “I’m a father and I love my kids, so I want to give the younger generation a message of hope,” he told Rollingstone. “Despite all our problems, we can create greatness in our lives.”
To get the ball rolling, Femi had earlier revealed the title track from the forthcoming album, “One People One World,” which can be heard below.
The song is in line with Femi’s activism theme, calling everyone to set aside differences and work towards a more peaceful world.
Kuti who serves as a spokesperson for UNICEF advocating for children’s rights, and is a promoter of HIV/AIDS prevention and education, recorded the new album with his band Positive Force, in Lagos.
“I hope this album brings joy, love, equal opportunity, justice, peace, understanding and togetherness to the world,” he told Billboard in an email.
