Who Do You Think Is The Most Popular Nigerian Artiste Right Now?” width=”600″ height=”450″ />
When it comes to music and popularity in Nigeria , the name Fela rings loud.
Anikulapo Kuti (Fela) single-handedly pioneered Afrobeat; a type of music that blends jazz , funk and psychedelic rock , traditional West African chant , and rhythms into an intentional sound in the early 60s and late 70s.
The legendary Fela music still reigns evergreen after so many decades across and beyond the Africa continents.
Since Fela has passed on and as far as the entertainment industry is concerned , a lot of artists have tried to wear his shoes , but the gap is obviously still there.
The popularity of Fela was so massive that aside from his songs , his zeal for political fairness was felt by most Nigerian politicians back then.
He was known for conveying his disappointment in the Nigerian political system through his music. This made Fela really loved by all.
