Tony Allen, once one of Fela Anikulapo Kuti's most trusted aides and drummer,returned from Paris where he has lived for many years, for a tour of Nigeria organized by Kayode 'K Samuel' Samuel, titled 'Lagos-No Shaking'. He brought along other foreign artistes (Mostly from France and Germany) to experiment with a fusion of African Beats and European rythms. Adunni (Ayo Orobiyi) of the singing group, Nefretiti who collaborated with the foreign ensemble is a recurring decimal in the pictures because I manage her and Nefretiti. It was an interesting event to be a part of and I danced away my cares (I do have some) at the new location of the French Cultural Centre, 4c Ruxton Road, Ikoyi, Lagos. A considerable number of the members of the expatriate community was there as well. Below are pictures. Posted by Picasa
