Fela Kuti

Acrylic on Canvas
40” x 60”

The essence of Fela Kuti, an icon of Afrobeat and a voice for the people, resonates through this vivid portrayal. He was not just a Nigerian musician but a vibrant spirit that refused to be silenced, a songwriter whose rhythms spoke of freedom and defiance, and a bandleader whose melodies were a clarion call for justice. His music—a rich tapestry of jazz, funk, and Yoruba beats—was more than sound; it was a movement, a pulsating force against the socio-political constraints of his time. Though Fela's physical presence is no longer, his spirit endures in every note and beat that echoes from his songs. His legacy lives, undimmed, through the continued activism and artistry of his kin. Each performance by Femi and Seun Kuti is a testament to Fela's indelible impact on music and society. His spirit and his songs remain an ever-present force, reverberating through the roots of African music and beyond.
