The yearly fiesta to mark the life and times of Abami eda, Fela Anikulakpo Kuti, who died 20 years ago, is billed to hold between October 9 and 15, 2017.
This was disclosed at a press briefing held at Fela’s residence in Ikeja by the 2017 Felabration organising committee, led by Theo Lawson and assisted by Yeni kuti, Trace and the rest of the Kuti family.
In his speech, Lawson disclosed that this year’s event has been decentralised as the show will be held simultaneously in various centres.
He further said that the week long affair will be kick started with a symposium with the guest speaker being Kenyan activist, Prof Patrice Lumumba on October 9.
The theme for the year’s celebration is ‘The Prophesy’
