Finding Fela ?

The search for the phenomenon Fela Anikulapo-Kuti can start from his legacy, the film BLACK PRESIDENT produced and personally financed by the afrobeat icon himself. A two and half hour epic film that traced Fela’s evolution from a tea-drinking, sex-shy young colonised African man with a historic and politic consciousness, transformed to a marijuana-smoking fighter for social justice. Principal shooting of the film was completed one day before the Nigerian Army soldiers attack on Kalakuta on 18th February 1977. The original sound-track was burnt in the inferno. Thanks to evolution in technology today, here is our modest attempt to give life to the film. Happy viewing!
