With the re-release of his back catalogue and a Broadway show about his life now playing in London, Fela Kuti, the controversial king of Afrobeat, is back with a vengeance.
A 1986 interview by Len Brown, reprinted from the Sabotage Times, gives us a glimpse of the man behind the music. It's a fascinating article that pieces together a complex and compelling personality. But its a small fragment that leaves the reader hungry for more.
The book includes interviews with Fela's "queens" and a dream sequence in which Fela is given encouragement by his mother which has been the source of a legal battle between the author and the producers of the Broadway play.
