A Chief Magistrate Court in Yaba, Lagos has fixed September 27 for the arraignment of Afrobeat musician Seun Kuti. Bahdstreetvibes reports
Chief Magistrate Adeola Olaunbosun, the judge presiding over the case was indisposed on Monday, thereby leading to an adjournment.
This makes it the fourth time the case has been adjourned.
Recall, that the musician was nabbed after the former Inspector General of Police Usman Baba on May 13 ordered his arrest for assaulting a police officer in uniform on the Third Mainland Bridge.
In his defence, the son of Afrobeat legend Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, through his Instagram Story, said the police officer tried to kill him but he would not press charges.
He was arrested, handcuffed and taken to the state CID in Panti, Yaba for investigation but was released on May 23 after meeting the conditions of his bail.
Tekno Started Afrobeat, Handed It To Davido and others – Comedian Koffi
Meanwhile, Nigerian comedian, Koffi Idowu Nuel, better known as Koffi, has claimed that singer, Augustine Miles Kelechi Okechukwu, also known as Tekno, created afro beats.
During a recent media chat with Galaxy TV, Koffi argued that Afro beats could not transition into the Western world not until Tekno introduced “samples and bounces” to it.
According to him, Tekno brought Afrobeat to Nigeria and handed it over to the likes of Davido, after releasing his song titled ‘Pana’.
He, however, said that Tekno didn’t get the recognition he deserved because he fell ill and didn’t utilise social media.
