According to Kuti, the missing band member is a bassist whose name is Aghedo Andrew.

The musician said Andrew “nearly ruined” his concert.

“He disappeared 20mins before show time. I want to thank the rest of the band for standing strong and giving one of the best shows of the tour,” Kuti wrote on Instagram.

Yeni Kuti, his sister, also posted about the development on Instagram, describing Andrew as “the face of betrayal”.

“The face of betrayal. I hope @realdonaldtrump catches you and deports you!!! Deserted band 20mins before concert because he wants to stay in America,” she wrote.

Femi Kuti is currently on a tour of the US, promoting his ‘One People, One World’ album.
