about

Afrobeat L'Ayeraye is the latest release from LA based afrobeat ensemble Najite & Olokun Prophecy. The album represents a cross generational culmination of artistic talent, all of whom were inspired to continue the legacy of the great Fela Anikulakpo Kuti. With songs written by band-leader Najite Agindotan and his sons Metebrafor and Onome Agindotan, this latest work is another great elevation of African music that communicates the empowerment of cultural identity and sends a message peace and unity.
