The organisers have announced plans for this year’s edition of the annual Felabration music festival in honour of Fela Anikulapo-Kuti
The festival which celebrates the life and times of the late music icon, multi-instrumentalist musician and composer, pioneer of Afro- beat music, human rights activist, and political maverick, Fela Anikulapo Kuti is tagged ‘Africa, Centre of the World‘.
Weve been told it will take a new shape this year as organizers have planned a list of scheduled events.
This year’s Felabration will kick off with the usual symposium ‘The Fela Debates’ themed ‘Corruption and the Generation Next’ and will hold on Monday, October 15, 2012, Fela’s birthday.
The symposium will feature as guest speakers Michael Veal, Seffi Attah, Wole Soyinka, Femi Falana, Carlos Moore, Donald Duke, Ben Murray Bruce and a host of others.
This symposium will be followed by a debate for senior secondary schools students themed ‘Social Media in Africa; Good or Bad’ which will take place on Tuesday, October 9, 2012 at the Freedom Park, Lagos.
The multi-headliner music concert featuring artistes from all parts of world will hold from Tuesday, October 16 to Sunday, October 22, 2012.Femi and Seun Kuti missed out from last year’s Felabration as they were on tour. Fans will be looking out most especially for their performances this year.
