Feb 10, 2021Taken on its own, Stop the Hate is a pleasing if somewhat unremarkable continuation of the Afrobeat canon, yet it serves to lay the foundations for Made’s second half, For(e)ward. Where Femi’s voice is endearingly wavering, the younger Kuti is far more forceful.
MojoFeb 10, 2021Both halves of Legacy + prove the Kuti continuum to be in rude health. [Mar 2021, p.86]
Feb 10, 2021The issue for both Femi and Made’s records, is that they feel too conscious of both their modern international audience, and their own political weight. It feels like there is too much scaffolding and careful consideration around the tracks, and as a result, the spontaneity and freeform funkiness of afrobeat gets diluted.

The album has a great instrumental, but it's so annoying of how repetitive it is,"The full album could just be simplifield in one song"
The album has a great instrumental, but it's so annoying of how repetitive it is, seriously, the first side of the album is almost one hour, filled with the same type of melody over and over.
Sincerely, I don't see me listening to this album again.… Expand
