Seun Kuti cancels Morocco gig over migrant deaths


­Seun Kuti, son of Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti, has cancelled a concert in Morocco to mourn last week’s tragedy on the border of Spain’s Melilla enclave in which at least 23 African migrants died. Saxophonist and singer Kuti had been set to play on Saturday at the Jazzablanca festival in the Moroccan port city of Casablanca. But in a video on Instagram, he announced “with great sadness” that he and his band would not be attending. The UN has accused both Moroccan and Spanish authorities of using “excessive force” against migrants, and demanded an investigation. Jazzablanca confirmed to AFP that Kuti’s concert had been cancelled due to “a personal decision by the artist”.
