Fela Kuti, Nigerian multi-instrumentalist musician and composer, pioneer of Afrobeat music, human rights activist, and political maverick


Sometimes I think people are so in awe of the musical, they forget the man it’s inspired by. I don’t want them….to FORGET that. He is the brilliance that inspired all of it. Fela Anikulapo Kuti (15 October 1938 - 2 August 1997)


FELA KUTI. 1938 - 1997. The only man who can challenge James Brown for title of The Undisputed Rhythm King. Also an icon for feminists all over the world. Ha ha ha!
