This concert takes place on June 27th, and we at Arious have
several pairs of tickets to give-away to our on-line family

way to give these tickets away to you is by presenting some trivia
questions for you to answer. Therefore, for the next 3 weeks
we will list 3 questions, and the first person or persons who
respond with the correct answers will be awarded a pair of ticket.
The First 3
questions are as follows:
Where was Femi Kuti born?
Femi Kuti toured the states
in 2000 with which rock n roll band?
His father, Fela Kuti (a
proud polygamist) once married how many of his dancers
during a concert?
