Episode 2

Fela Kuti created a unique sound, Afrobeat, but he was far more than a music star. In Nigeria he spoke out for the oppressed on all social issues. He was a cultural revolutionary, and paid the ultimate price. Neneh Cherry conlcudes his story and highlights the relevance of his influence on the music scene of Nigeria and across the world.

First broadcast on Radio 2.
