Also, he will be inducted into the Headies Hall of Fame that day.
Acknowledging the gesture, Femi says, “It is a kind of privilege. It is good. I mean I would drink a bottle of champagne when I get it, we will celebrate here at the Afrika Shrine.”
But to those who think that his career revolves around music awards, he adds, “My career is not based on awards. I sincerely mean what I sing about. My music is truly fighting for electricity, good healthcare, service, good roads, equal education for my people and African unity. It is neither a love song nor commercial and it still gets headlines and good reviews. I’m especially touched when young people appreciate what I am doing.”
