In the spirit of celebrating the life of an icon, an annual event tagged Felabration was created, where artistes, big wigs and who is who all over rthe world gather at the Afrika Shrine in Lagos State home of the legend before his death, to celebrate his life.
Below is Amercan hiphop legend, Diddy grooving to one of Fela's songs in his dressing room. Watch:
Here are also some thought provoking quotes by Fela:
Music legend and activist Fela Anikulapo Kuti would have been 80 years this month (October 15) . In honor of his life and his mission to use his music to liberate his people, I have compiled a few of Fela quotes. - 1. "To be spiritual is not by praying and going to church. Spiritualism is the understanding of the universe so that it can be a better place to live in." - 2. "My people are scared of the air around them, they always have an excuse not to fight for freedom." - 3. "To think how many Africans suffer in oblivion. That makes me sad… Despite my sadness, I create joyful rhythms… I am an artist… I want people to be happy and I can do it by playing happy music. And through happy music I tell them about the sadness of others… So really I am using my music as a weapon."
