Mádé Kuti promotes peace in new release, ‘No more wars’

Grammy nominee and Africa’s rising Afrobeat singer, Mádé Kuti, has released a brand new single “no more wars” (via Partisan Records) off his forthcoming album.

The single was produced by Sodi Marciszewer, (who recorded, mixed or produced Fela’s last six albums) and GMK.

The song entitled ‘No more wars’ features an impressive vocal performance from the multi-instrumentalist, who preaches the need to embrace peace and re-awakening of true values during trying times.

Made Kuti - releases no more wars

‘No more Wars’ marks the young Mádé Kuti’s first musical release after the completion of the tour of the U.S. with his dad, Femi Kuti and the Positive Force.

‘No more wars’ was composed, arranged, and authored by Mádé Kuti.

Mádé Kuti’s new music draws from a deep well and understanding of the insecurity and global wars and the Afrobeat storytelling tradition to fuse soulful Afrobeat chords, horns and voices in creating a unique sound that will be a hit among young and older Nigerians and international audiences alike.

Speaking on the release of “No more wars,” Mádé explains: “‘No More Wars’ is entirely about temper, control, and focus. It’s about experiences I’ve had that taught me to reflect intentionally before I react. The lyrics are inspired by my father’s consistency in following his path despite dealing with an overwhelming amount of harsh, untrue, and deliberately cruel people inside and outside of his circle.”

Over the years, this graduate of London’s Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance has been horning his musical prowess in the music industry – learning from his father and the legacies of his grandfather, Fela Anikulapo Kuti – before starting his Movement band to release his first album while still performing with his father’s Positive Force band.

With the release of this single and his forthcoming album, Mádé Kuti is set to once again remind Nigerians and his international audience of his lyrical prowess, vocal dexterity, and multi-instrumental abilities.
