Fela Anikulapo-Kuti: The Primary Man of an African Personality : the Narrative & Screenplay
Fela Anikulapo-Kutiis universal ideas were fresh as dawn. His compositions were sophisticated, a highly 'musical construction'. From 1987, Fela was the only band in the world with two bass guitars in glissade, a form where the music slides between two notes in which all intermediate notes are played. Fela's behaviour was not extreme, when you eliminate his excesses, his socio-political musings indicate a complete intellectual capacity. He chewed up all books by great Africanists and his thoughts went deeper with his analytical mind. His music was opened to the power of the written word and it was the dawn of awareness for Fela's musical orientation, the beginning of his "Felasophy"; a total reawakening into the inhumanity against humanity. He felt for Africa and their wretched lives. Every successive government in Nigeria kicked Fela and through multiple detentions they almost broke his spirit, however during these times he wrote, composed and arranged the best music of his career. Fela Anikulapo-Kuti: The Primary Man Of An African Personality is a dramatic presentation of "Felasophy." It chronicles the music, politics, life and courage of the legendary Afro-beat activist who died on August 2, 1997."
