The life and work of Nigeria’s most famous musician, Fela Kuti, is explored in this documentary that interweaves interviews from family, close friends and musicians alongside archive material and rehearsal footage of the biographical Broadway show 'Fela!'. Responding to political corruption and influenced by the civil rights movement in the US, Fela Kuti’s music was a weapon that he used against Nigeria’s oppressive regime. His persistent outspokenness made him an enemy of the government, and many times he and the commune which housed his 27 wives found themselves the victims of arbitrary violent raids. Covering the different phases of his music as well as his unconventional personal life up until his untimely death, this documentary reveals a multifaceted portrait of a fascinating musician.
