Femi Kuti to perform at The Headies

Organisers of The Headies have revealed that Afro-beat king Femi Kuti will be performing at the 2012 awards scheduled for October 20, 2012 at the Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos Nigeria.

This will be Femi Kuti’s first ever performance at the awards show. Of course, this also gives the prestigious awards another look, as it is fast becoming a blend of generational genres of music.

A few weeks back it was announced along with the nominations list that Kuti, 50, will be inducted into The Headies Hall Of Fame. ‘It’s a kind of privilege, its good. I mean I would drink a bottle of champagne when I get it, we will celebrate here’, the three-time Grammy nominee says.
