Wyclef Jean – Fela Kuti (Official Video)
Legendary world renowned song-writer and producer, Wyclef Jean, is preparing a big return in the form of an exciting album that will be titled Carnival III: The Fall and Rise of the Refugee. At a time when the human migration crisis is gaining more spotlight than ever, this album could not be more relevant. One of the biggest songs that will come off this record is a track titled and dedicated to the late Nigerian legend, “Fela Kuti”.
This week, Wyclef surprised us all with the release of the video to Fela Kuti which came bearing some incredible visuals.
In the video, Wyclef takes on the role of Fela and shows off his royal status as he tries to romance his queen with his music. It’s a song that late Nigerian singer and activist, Fela, would most likely have been proud of.
