Nigeria celebrates the king of Afrobeat Fela Kuti


Fans of the late Afrobeat legend and political activist Fela Kuti can now get a closer look at his life, in a newly opened museum in Lagos.

The Kalakuta Museum was funded by the Lagos State government, making it the first time Nigerian authorities have honoured him.

This past week his family put on a series of concerts called Felabration, featuring singers and artists channeling his funky style.

Fela Kuti died in 1997 after three decades of fighting corruption within Nigerian politics.

The BBC's Tomi Oladipo went to look around the museum in Lagos.
