Fela Kuti

Fela Anikulapo Kuti created a unique sound, Afrobeat, but he was far more than a music star. In Nigeria he spoke out for the oppressed on all social issues. He was a cultural revolutionary, and paid the ultimate price. Neneh Cherry tells his story and highlights the relevance of his influence today on the music scene of Nigeria and across the world.
