The celebration of Fela’s life and musical legacy celebrated for one week every year tagged Felabration has become an internationally recognized event.
Felabration brings Afrobeat lovers from all over the world to the New Afrikan Shrine in Ikeja, Lagos for one week of brilliantly good music.
However this year, Hard Rock Cafe, Oniru, Victoria Island hosted the son of the Afrobeat legend, Grammy nominated artiste Femi Anikulapo-Kuti.
The event titled ‘Femi Live’ was created by Hard Rock Cafe, El Carnaval, Ma’on Communications and Naira Box.
Femi hit the stage and delivered a performance worthy of his surname.
Other members of Fela’s household were also in attendance – Seun Kuti and Yeni Kuti later joined their brother on stage. “You people are here, who will take care of the shrine for me oh?” Femi teased.
The crowd had an amazing time listening to hits from Femi and of course from Fela.
