Anyone who hasnt seen Femi perform DONT MISS IT! Even if your going mostly to see the reggae artists, trust me......dont miss him. His performances are incredibly lively and really fun to get into. I saw some posts above putting him down in their lists but some didnt. And if its because your not familiar with, or havent been impressed much by his recorded work, trust me his performance(if all goes well) will go off!

Dont Sleep!
