– A Member Of Femi Kuti’s Band On Reaching US Abscond From The band While His Whereabouts Is Still Unknown
According to Femi who reported updates of the incident on social media
his bassist, one Aghedo Andrew was suddenly nowhere to be found just 20 minutes before he got on stage at the XPN Music Festival in New York.
The performance could have been a flop considering his bassist had a vital role to play in the performance but thanks to the art of improvisation
His band irrespective of the lapse in numbers gave one of the best performances at the concert.
the Afrobeat maestro also used the opportunity to thank the other members of The Positive Force band for bringing their A-Game and “standing strong and giving one of the best shows of the tour.”
It is yet to be disclosed why Aghedo who the singer disclosed was over 40 years of age would allegedly disappear from the touring band
However, Femi while answering questions from concerned fans also revealed that to give the Edo State born bassist a chance in his band, he (Femi) had to drop his own son.
Such a selfless thing to do and look how he got his pay back.
It is no news that many Nigerians who go outside the country for one reason or the other prefer to abscond and live abroad illegally in search of a better life
Than stay back In their country and strife for a noble course.
We can only hope this is not the case for the Edo born bassist who has not been seen yet nor heard of at the time of writing this article.
