In memory of Afrobeats legend, Fela Kuti, an annual festival is held in Lagos to celebrate his achievements as an artist and activist. As with every year, there are tons of Felabration events to attend, and we say you attend at least one! Find here or here the full list of events for Felabration 2017.
In particular, "Alliance Française Lagos - Ikeja Branch on Saturday 14th October 2017 from 6.30 pm to 8.30pm as we pay tribute to the legendary Fela Kuti in presence of Show Boy, Lemi Gariokwu, Duro Ikujenyo and more. The event will start with an opening drink, followed by a discussion and a buffet dinner - all free of charge."
