Lagos State Government Set To Honour Afro Music Legend Fela Anikulapo-Kuti



The Lagos State Government has announced plans to honour the late Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, as the week long activities marking his 79th posthumous birthday and the 20th anniversary of his death draw to a close.




According to the Commissioner, Governor Ambode will on Sunday, October 15, 2017, unveil a statue in Fela’s memory at the Allen Roundabout in Ikeja.


Standing at 25 feet and titled ‘Liberation’, the statue is done in fibreglass by artist Abolore Sobayo of Cowrie Studios as “an iconic legacy to celebrate Fela’s unique dress sense and style of salute.


The Governor will also pay a visit to the Kalakuta Museum on Gbemisola Street, Ikeja where he will join family and Fela devotees in homage to the music icon.


The day will be rounded off with a Special Lagos Jump – a musical tribute to the man affectionately called “Abami Eda” – at the Afrika Shrine in Agidingi, Ikeja to draw the curtain on the 2017 edition of Felabration.
