WATCH: Wyclef Jean pays tribute to the legendary Fela Anikulapo-Kuti in new video

Off his forthcoming album “Carnival III: The Fall and Rise of a Refugee“, Haitian music legend Wyclef Jean recently dropped an ode to the late Nigerian music legend, political and human rights activist Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, or at least that’s what the title of the song “Fela Kuti” suggests.

Produced by Supah Mario, this dance-inducing is a staple of 1970s Afrobeat and jazz music.


“I decided to name it Fela Kuti because for me, I feel like we be thinking of [Bob] Marley, we give a lot of people from our past props, so when the kids hear Fela Kuti, I really want them to Google it,” Jean told XXL.
