This book is about Fela Kuti
Dive into the whirlwind life of Fela Kuti, the Nigerian musical genius and political firebrand, with "Fela: This Bitch of a Life." Authored by Carlos Moore, this biography captures the essence of Fela through a vibrant narrative derived from extensive conversations with the legend himself. Published on May 1, 2009, the book paints a vivid picture of a man who was as much a source of inspiration as he was of controversy. From his explosive music that challenged political norms to his bold stance on racial justice and voting rights, Fela's life was a complex symphony of triumphs and struggles. Moore enhances the narrative with personal interviews with fifteen of Fela’s wives, adding layers to the portrait of a man who lived fiercely until his death in 1997, which drew over a million people to his funeral. This biography is an essential read for those in adult education, offering a deep dive into the themes of activism and cultural resistance. Engage with the spirit of Fela Kuti and reflect on how one man's artistry shook the foundations of political discourse.
