Afrobeat legend, Femi Kuti has confirmed that Andrew Aghedo, a member of his band ‘The Positive Force’, absconded in the United States, 20 minutes before they were to perform.
Aghedo could not be traced as Femi was about to thrill New Yorkers at the Central Park, New York on Sunday after performing at the XPoNential Music Festival in New Jersey.
Femi, in a post on his Instagram page, lamented that the disappearance of Aghedo could have ruined his show.
He, however, expressed gratitude to the rest of the band for their performance.
“My bassist, Aghedo Andrew nearly ruined my concert yesterday in New York @Summerstage.
“He disappeared 20 minutes before the show; I want to thank the rest of the band for standing strong and giving one of the best shows of the tour.”
His sister Yeni, had earlier called out the bassist, praying that he gets deported.
