Highlites with IK: Felabration

Different things come to mind when we hear the name Fela Anikulapo Kuti. Some see him as the Godfather of Afro-beat, others a human rights activist and some even just see him as the crazy man that once wore underpants while performing on the stage!


In celebration of Fela's legacy, we have Felabration which holds this year 
from the 12th -18th of October. The event is Yeni's brain child and with the exception of 1999, the festival has taken place every year since then.


On this episode of Highlites with IK, we get to sit with Fela's daughter Yeni Kuti, or YK as she's fondly known, and chat about her dad like we've never heard before now. Yeni
 talks candidly about growing up with the great Fela and the kind of father and man he really was.


Don't miss this special episode of Highlites with IK this Saturday at 21:15CAT on Africa Magic Showcase.
