Things & Whatnot

Optimist. Realist. Black. Art. Nakedness.Opinionated. IamDutch.Snapchat. Ask me whatever.


The 15th October marked the anniversary of one of Nigeria’s greatest musicians, the ever-iconic force that was (and still is) the late Fela Anikulapo Kuti. In celebration of the aptly-titled day known as a ‘Felabration’, merging it with this month’s theme of highlighting African art, artists and art inspired by Africa/Africans, here are a few of my favourite pieces of art inspired by Fela.

But of course, the greatest artist to ever create images influenced by the life of Fela was the equally legendary Lemi Ghariokwu.
