Ghanaian musicians over the weekend put up spectacular performances at the just ended Felabration music and arts festival in Nigeria.
Felabration is an annual festival of music and arts to celebrate the life and works of Nigeria’s foremost musical icon Fela Anikulakpo Kuti.
The six-day music and arts festival took place on October 13 with a massive climax on October 19.
Veteran palm wine highlife musician and father of Mεnsa from the FOKN fame, Tumi Ebow Ansa, Yaa Pono and Yasmine Helwani, among others, took turns to thrill the audience with some indigenous Ghanaian tunes.
To crown the event, which took place at Ikeja in Lagos, Femi and Seun Kuti—sons of Fela Kuti—performed some hit songs from their father’s collection.
The event also brought together renowned musicians like Hugh Masekela, Awilo, Baba Maal, Les Nubians, King Sunny Ade, Lagbaja and Asa among others.
Felabration is known to attract a lot of artistes—both locally and internationally—as well as music and art lovers around the world.
Fela is remembered as the creator of afrobeat, a social critic, political activist and a philosopher of his own political ideology. He is still celebrated as a hero by millions for his contributions to society.
