Felabration 2016 is already in full swing and more gloss is being added to the annual event which is in honour of Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.

Biyi Bandele, a seasoned director who directed the movie adaptation of Chimamanda Adichie‘s Half of a Yellow Sun, intends to add colour to this year’s Felabration with a selection of memorable photos taken over the past 25 years.
