The man identified as Aghedo Andrew was slated to perform with the band and every trace of him could not be located just at the point when he was utmost needed in the band.
Femi took to Twitter to narrate how bitter he was about the incident, but took time to praise other band members who held it down and ensured the show went smoothly.
My bassist Aghedo Andrew nearly ruined my concert yesterday in New York @SummerStage ,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.
He has a good job. Paid quite well. Has enough money to resign properly and with all visas in his passport he can travel anywhere in the world. So that’s not an excuse.
He was then told by a follower not to worry about him as he will surely be fished out by ICE and Femi Kuti replied
I’m not worried. Still have dedicated musicians that are committed to holding the integrity of the music.
Not long after then, his sister Yeni Kuti also took to her Instagram page to call out the guy and even tagged President Donald Trump to notify him of the guy’s action and hope that he is deported back to Nigeria and then disgraced.
The face of betrayal. I hope @realdonaldtrump catches you and deports you!!! Deserted band 20mins before concert because he wants to stay in America
