We weren’t exaggerating when we said last night one was one of music in Lagos! As well as the Coke Studio Launch party, the Hard Rock Café celebrated the 15th edition of Felabration, with special guests Femi Kuti, son of the legendary musician Fela Kuti.

“We are proud to be part of this remarkable event that celebrates a true born Nigerian Icon and happy to say that Hard Rock Café has become the musical hub for Lagos”- Kersi Marker, General Manager, Hard Rock Café Lagos.

In 1988, another of Fela Kuti’s son, Yeni Anikulapo-Kuti, conceived the idea of Felabration, an annual music festival to celebrate the work of his much loved father on the week of his birthday. This celebration is not limited to Nigeria alone. Last week London had its on Felabratioin at the Electric Ballroom. World wide, exhibitions and performances are being held to commemorate the work of this sensational artist.

The reality is that art, in this case music, has the ability to transcend the barriers that the artist himself cannot. Although he has passed away, Fela’s work lives on; it is the music we remember. To this day, African artists attest to how inspirational Fela’s music has been on their own work. We still love and listen to Fela because his words still resonate with us today. His music spoke to a human truth, an aspiration for more, for better, both within ourselves and within our  communities. Perhaps we will forever go on listening to his works; no matter how much change it moves us to affect there will always be other  means of progression.

We wish you all a happy Felabratioin.

  2. This is the perfect site for anybody who wishes to find out
    about this topic. You know a whole lot its almost hard to argue with you
    (not that I personally would want to…HaHa). You certainly put a new spin on a topic
    that’s been discussed for many years. Wonderful stuff, just great!

  3. Hi there fantastic website! Does running a blog similar to this take a great deal of work?
    I have very little expertise in computer programming
    however I had been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyway,
    if you have any suggestions or techniques for new blog owners please share.
    I know this is off topic but I simply had to ask. Cheers!

  4. Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing
    a few months of hard work due to no data backup.
    Do you have any methods to stop hackers?

  5. Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re
    working with? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time
    deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style
    seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  6. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets
    I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and
    was hoping maybe you would have some experience
    with something like this. Please let me know if you run into
    anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new
    updates.

  7. May I simply say what a relief to find an individual who genuinely understands what they’re discussing on the web.
    You actually understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More and more people should look at this and understand this side of the story.

    It’s surprising you’re not more popular because you surely have
    the gift.

  8. Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa?
    My website addresses a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit
    from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Terrific blog by the way!

    heads up! Other then that, awesome blog!

  11. A motivating discussion is worth comment. I do think
    that you ought to write more on this subject, it might not be a taboo subject but typically people do not speak
    about such subjects. To the next! Many thanks!!

  12. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between usability and
    appearance. I must say that you’ve done a great job with this.

    In addition, the blog loads super quick for me on Chrome.
    Outstanding Blog!

  13. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much
    about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.

  15. What you wrote was actually very logical. But, what about
    this? suppose you were to create a killer post title?
    I am not saying your content is not good., but suppose you added something to maybe get folk’s attention? I mean Felabration 2016: Why We Love Fela Kuti – Glam Africa is kinda vanilla.
    You should peek at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create post headlines to get people to open the links.
    You might add a video or a related pic or two to grab
    people excited about everything’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it might make your website a
    little bit more interesting.
