Fela! the musical Fela! plays on Broadway since last Fall and now is coming to LondonThe Nigerian diaspora alone forms a potentially big audience for Fela! The musical on Nigeria's most famous musician Fela Kuti will see its première in the British capital on November 16 in the National Theatre. On Broadway the musical has been a hit since last Fall. The New York Times review spoke of 'a helluva party' and people who saw it state that it is impossible to leave the theater without dancing. Apparently I am not the only fan of the sizzling afrobeat of the Nigerian who died in 1997. I'm not into musicals, but for this one I might make an exception.
