Nigerian Artistes Support Felabration


As the 2008 edition of Felabration, the annual event put together in celebration of the birthday of the late Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, holds between 14 and 19 October, artistes are rallying round the organisers.

As the 2008 edition of Felabration, the annual event put together in celebration of the birthday of the late Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, holds between 14 and 19 October, artistes are rallying round the organisers.

This was disclosed during a courtesy visit by the members of Felabration committee led by Yeni Anikulapo-Kuti.

Yeni said Weird MC, Paul Play, Olu Maintain, Wasiu Alabi Pasuma, Sound Sultan, Sasha, Yinka Davies, Dr. Victor Uwaifo, etc. have signified their intention to perform at the annual event.

According to Yeni, the committee members are still trying to speak with the king of World Beats, Otunba Sunday Ishola Adeniyi Adegeye a.k.a. King Sunday Ade, to perform.

“We will also be rounding off discussions with Dr. Victor Olaiya, to be part of Felabration,” she told P.M. Entertainment.

Another member of the committee, Lulu Onoikhua, said African Express, a collection of artistes from Africa, Europe, Asia and other parts of the world, will be part of this year’s edition of Felabration.

“In fact, they will arrive on 27 September, in preparation for the event,” Onoikhua disclosed, adding that Cowbell will be branding the vehicles to be used for Midnight Life on 18 October.

Speaking on why Seun Anikulapo-Kuti who played last year will not be around for the event, Yeni said: “Seun will be going on tour. I have told his manager to make sure that his tour next year does not coincide with Felabration. However, Femi will perform this year.”

Fela’s first daughter said that the Lagos State government, through the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, has adopted the 2008 Felabration, while Ogun State promised to be part of next year’s event.
