For fans of late Afrobeat icon Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, these are exciting times as the spirit of Abami Eda will be channeled by the award-winning London Afrobeat Collective in their first-ever tour of Nigeria tagged Pride of Culture. 

Incorporating the energy and high-spirited stagecraft of Fela, the tour which is organized by Zmirage brings the vast immaterial wealth of Africa, personified by Afrobeat to the fore.

Playing four dates, the band will perform at the June 12 Cultural Centre, Kuto, Abeokuta on Thursday October 15,  Wheatbaker Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos on Friday October 16th La Campaigne Tropicana, Akodo, Lagos on Saturday October 17th and final performance on Sunday October 18th at Felabration, Africa Shrine, Agidingbi,  Ikeja, Lagos.

The 10-man LAC band is a UK-based ensemble of Afrobeat enthusiasts who aim to inspire more of Fela-like ingenuity not only in the area of music but other professional facets of life.
