Cold? Warm up with us on this Funky Friday!
The artist we are celebrating today is the legendary Fela Kuti.
One cannot mention Afrobeats without Fela’s name. Many regard him as the pioneer of the Afrobeat. He was a political activist, Pan Africanist, Musician, composer among many others. Fela’s activism can be traced to his mother who was a women’s rights activist in Nigeria.
Shake off the winter + COVID + Lockdown blues and get down with Fela’s Shakara
