Lagos state keeps it real with Fela
The Lagos state government pays homage to Fela for doing so much for Nigerians.
On Sunday, October 15, 2017, the Governor of Lagos state, Akinwunmi Ambode officially unveiled the statue of Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.
Despite Fela's influence in music and now contemporary pop culture, successive administrations have always kind of distanced itself from the late King of Afrobeat.
Fela's statue is a rare honour for a man that has impacted the lives of many Nigerians home and abroad. It's nice to see him finally honoured by those in the corridor of power.
We hope this is the beginning for more tributes and honours to the man known as Fela Anikualpo-Kuti. The man deserves so much more.
