Fela!



I remember my sister and her friend practicing shaking their booties because they wanted to be Fela dancers. It's crazy that he is gone but his music and legacy still lives. I read this review of the broadway musical Fela! and the pictures reminded me of when I saw Femi Kuti in concert a few years ago. That was pretty amazing! I thought it was the closest you can get to seeing the real Abami Eda deal; but it looks like this musical may just be a little closer...

Eeerr? Fela dancers! My father almost whooped my ass once cleaning in a ragged shirt that looked like I was a Fela dancer.

LOL! I guess boarding school was good for something, cos I'm sure they would've gotten whooped for their practice sessions.
