Fela Kuti and his music were both larger than life. It’s been unfair to reduce Fela’s legacy to Nigeria’s version of James Brown. While he and Brown had similarities, Kuti’s legacy stands on its own as one of the greatest and consistent musicians and showmen we’ve ever seen. Using his music as a call to action for activism, Kuti’s music is one part groove, one part revolution.
