Felabration: Lagos State Plans More Monuments For Fela Kuti

The great Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti made history from Lagos Nigeria.

He resided, recorded hit songs, sold out hit shows and even executed his legendary move of marrying 27 women in a day in the great city.

To this end, the Lagos state government has dimmed it fit to have mementos of the late legend scattered around the state.

Thus, the state plans to build more monuments of the music icon.

On the last day of Felabration, the Lagos state governor, Akinumi Ambode officially unveiled the Fela Kuti statue at the Allen roundabout in Ikeja.

“Fela would forever be accorded his position in the global hall of fame of artist. The phenomenon that the world knows as Fela was deeply rooted in the evolution of Lagos State.

“The story of music, art, entertainment and tourism in Lagos and Nigeria cannot be told without an eloquent mention of the ‘Abami Eda’” the governor said.

“Fela deserves to be celebrated with many more monuments with different artistic expressions. Today he is still alive in his music. This monument that we have unveiled today should be the first of many to celebrate the icon” he added.

Fela would have been 79 on October 15, and the statue named ‘The Liberation’ was created as a mark of respect and in remembrance of the legend.

It was designed by artist, fashion designer and politician, Sobayo Abolore.

Felabration is marked every year to celebrate the legacy of Fela Anikulapo Kuti who is the founder of the Afrobeat genre of music.

This year’s edition was held from October 9 to October 15, with art exhibitions, plays, music concerts, symposiums, quizzes and various competitions across the state.
