While hardly a frequent theater attendee, I appreciate greatness in various forms. I found it in FELA! the musical. Fela Kuti was quite an interesting person. Dedicated. Visionary. The show is on tour now. If it’s coming near you, give yourself the distinguished honor of seeing it. You will thank yourself.

Below is a video of him performing “Teacher Don’t Teach Me No Nonsense”. You may not know what he’s saying, but you feel the music and understand the vibe from the title.
