Two weeks ago I finally had the opportunity of watching the fantastic and much talked about musical, FELA, at the Royal National Theatre (RNT) in London where it began in April 2009. Running at the 1,160-seat OlivierTheatre (one of the three within the RNT – the other lesser two being the Lyttelton Theatre and the Cottesloe Theatre), the musical is a brilliant and captivating attempt to capture and appreciate the essences of Fela Anikulapo-Kuti: his musical genius, his rebelliousness, and his political and social radicalism. It did more; it was a double – as much a celebration of Fela the son as it was a glorification, nay, deification of Funmilayo, Fela’s mother. The latter was deliberately embarked upon with such elaborate, even extravagant, romanticism probably for Fela’s sake in heaven. For, truly, Fela adored his mother; a mother whodropped every thing to be with and support Fela regardless of her son’s deviant tendencies; a mother Fela sang in praise of as “Mother of Africa, Political Ma ...

Fela Returns To Broadway By Abi Ishola “We came here for our enjoyment and your enjoyment.” Those words mark the start of Fela! On Broadway, the widely celebrated Broadway musical. From top to bottom the show lives up to that claim. In 2009 Fela! first opened in New York to immediate success. The energetic cast, including several hip shaking dancers and a excellent live band helped capture about half a million viewers in 15 months. Celebrity guest appearances by the likes of Jay Z, Beyonce, Alicia Keys, and Spike Lee became a mainstay, giving the show more clout. Fela! on Broadway went on to receive 11 Tony Award Nominations. The company later embarked on a successful tour across the United States. There were sold out performances at London’s prestigious Royal National Theatre by a second company of performers, and the Broadway cast made its way to Lagos for a successful run. Now the show is back on Broadway at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre with the same level of flair. One of the best aspects of the p ...
