Felabration 2023 To Begin October 9


The organisers of Felabration have announced that this year’s edition of the annual music festival in memory and celebration of Fela Anikulapo-Kuti will hold from Monday, October 9 to Sunday, October 15, 2023.

This was announced in a press release made available to journalists in Lagos on Friday, June 16, 2023.

The theme for this year’s edition is ‘Question Jam Answer,’ a classic record composed by Fela and released in 1972. The song fits right into the socio-political mood of the country after the intriguing general election, where people are searching for answers to questions asked.

Felabration 2023 will present an authentic and vivid showcase of African music, creativity and resilience through art, dance, fashion and music.

The festival usually features The Senior Secondary Schools Debate, The Fela Debates (Symposium), The Afrobics Dance Competition, The Artwork Competition, The Dress Fela Fashion Competition, The Musical Concert and other activities.

According to the organisers, the concert will feature some of the biggest music stars from Nigeria and foreign artists also registered to perform at the New Afrika Shrine in Ikeja, Lagos.

Felabration is a week-long celebration of Fela’s legacy as the Afrobeat genre creator and a renowned human rights activist.

Conceived in 1998 by Yeni Anikulapo-Kuti to honour the legacy of her father, Felabration is Nigeria’s biggest music festival today. It hosts tens of thousands of attendees annually.

Currently, Felabration Event is organised by the Felabration Organising Committee. Felabration, an official tourist destination of The Lagos State Government, is a major event sponsor.
