P.M.Entertainment learnt that members of the new Afrikan Shrine led by Yeni Kuti are currently planning an elaborate party to mark Femi’s golden age.

To this end, a committee has been set up to make the event a success.

Investigations revealed that apart from engaging top acts to honour the man popularly called ‘Soki’ , the committee is also selling the popular ‘aso-ebi’, which will be adorned by friends and well wishers.

A source close to the committee told P.M.Entertainment that though Femi is excited that he is turning 50, he did not want an elaborate party,’but he is being forced to hold the party by Yeni and others’.

Speaking with P.M.Entertainment, Yeni Kuti said: “We are all happy that ‘Soki’ is turning 50 and all hands are on deck to celebrate him.”

At 50, Femi has achieved a lot, he has taken the Afro beat music to the international level; he is the first Nigerian artise to win the Kora awards and he has been nominated twice for the Grammy award.
