According to the latest reports via Okay Africa, late Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti has gotten a new website to his name.
The report hinted that the new website was developed by Partisan and Knitting Factory Records alongside the Kuti’s family.
It further revealed that the site will provide the latest news about Fela re-issues from Fela, new projects and events, commissioned editorial articles, merch, and more.
Fela’s longtime manager Rikki Stein mentions, “bringing together such a gifted team of creators to build this ultimate, all-singing, all-dancing tribute to my friend is a source of immense pride and satisfaction. As is always the case with any enterprise involving Fela, it goes above and beyond people simply exercising their professions and becomes a labor of love for all involved.”
“Twenty-two years after his passing, this testament illustrates and illuminates the myriad reasons for which Fela Anikulapo Kuti and his works are, ever-increasingly, respected and admired throughout the world. Everybody say: Yeah Yeah!”
The new Fela website is launching with a new era-by-era history of the afrobeat legend written by Chris May.
It also features a new reissue of Music Of Many Colours, the 1980 Fela album featuring Roy Ayers.
