New year gifts are always special. But even more so, when that gift, is a hugely rare item from a famous superstar. Thus it was, a few days ago, that Nigerian entrepreneur, lawyer, social activist, and CEO of Chocolate City Entertainment, Audu Maikori, received a special package from Afrobeat king, Femi Kuti.

The package was the "The Complete Works of Fela"; a boxed set of 27 discs, containing all the works of late Afrobeat legend, Fela Kuti from, 1938 to 1997!
Clearly overwhelmed by the gift, Audu Maikori quickly shared on Instagram:
‘‘Thanks @Femiakuti for the lovely new year presents; the COMPLETE WORKS OF FELA LIMITED EDITION. This is priceless". Since then, he has been receiving countless congratulatory messages from the high and mighty.
Audu Maikori through his group, Chocolate City entered into a contractual agreement with Femi Kuti to manage his musical career in Nigeria. Clearly, both have enjoyed a great working relationship. Most of Femi Kuti’s successes and breakthroughs in Nigeria in 2014 were attributed to the hard work of Audu - led group Chocolate City, and this seems a fitting way to reward him.
