Fela Off Broadway
For those unbeknownst, Fela Kuti is a legendary Nigerian performer and the founder of Afrobeat. He is admired amongst my relatives and amongst many Nigerians because of his talent, political commentary on albums, and his outspokenness on Nigeria's politrix.
Some of you may already be familiar with his son Femi. He collaborated with Common on "Time Travellin" for Like Water for Chocolate.
