Felabration 2017 Through The Eyes of a Photographer : Photos from Freedom Park Lagos

It’s been 20 years since the demise of the icon Fela Anikulapo Kuti; and as I watched majority of the activities through my camera lens, I thought about how this year’s theme ‘The Prophecy’ could not have been more clever. For years, Fela was a thorn in the side of the government, singing songs that became the voice of the hopeless – boldly sounding his opinions through his art, his music.
As his sons and performing artistes that came to honour the legend at 2017 rendered some of his songs again, I wondered if Fela knew that the Nigerian situation wasn’t bad enough then – that he was only somewhat prophesying.
