Made Kuti releases new single ‘No More Wars’

Made Kuti

Afrobeat singer, Made Kuti, has released a new single entitled ‘No More Wars’.

The single released on Friday is one of the tracks from his forthcoming album with Partisan Records.

The single, which was composed, arranged, and authored by Made, was produced by GMK and Sodi Marciszewer, who recorded and produced the late Fela Kuti’s last six albums.

Speaking on the significance of the song, the 27-year-old said, “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.”

The song 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.

The Grammy nominee returned to the scene with the new single after the completion of the tour of the U.S. with his dad, Femi Kuti, and the Positive Force.

The record is coming after the success of ‘For‘e’ward, the singer’s first album that was jointly released alongside his father’s album and titled Legacy+.

Made’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.
