Fela Kuti’s 25th Death Anniversary († August 2, 1997)

Fela Kuti was one of the most important musicians on the African continent as well as one of its most important political voices in the 1970s.

With his band "Afrika 70" he invented Afrobeat, in which the multi-instrumentalist and singer combined influences of African-American music with traditional West African elements. In his lyrics, he denounces corruption, mismanagement and social injustice in his own country, but also the ongoing European exploitation of the African continent. To make sure that his message was understood beyond the borders of his homeland, he sang in his native language as well as in Pidgin English.

During the 1970s Fela Kuti ran the "Afrika Shrine", a legendary nightclub in Lagos, a social centre, performance venue and progressive salon all in one. Famous guests such as Paul McCartney would come and follow Fela Kuti’s invitation. He also established the "Kalakuta Republic," a communal compound in the Nigerian capital, that housed his family, band members and recording studio. He declared the commune independent of the ruling military dictatorship, but in the end it would be destroyed by the very same. With his vision of an independent, free and united Africa, he also founded the very short-lived "Movement of the People" party. However, his candidacy for the presidency was rejected. Because of his political statements and activities, those in power considered Fela Kuti to be public enemy No. 1, consequently he was arrested dozens of times.

Fela Kuti toured extensively through Europe and the USA, thereby making his music and his mission known outside Africa. The 1978 concert at the Berlin Philharmonic, as part of the Berlin Jazz Days, was even broadcast on ARD, would be both the apogee and the end of the band "Africa 70". With his follow-up project "Egypt 80", Fela Kuti turned increasingly to traditional African music and spirituality.

When he died on August 3, 1997, as a result of AIDS - the existence of which he had denied until the very end - more than half a million people gathered in the streets to bid him farewell.
