Fela!

Fela! is the story of legendary Nigerian musician Fela Kuti, whose soulful Afrobeat rhythms ignited a generation.


Inspired by his mother, a civil rights champion, he defied a corrupt and oppressive military government and devoted his life and music to the struggle for freedom and human dignity.


Fela! is a triumphant tale of courage, passion and love, featuring Fela Kuti’s captivating music and the visionary direction and choreography of Tony® Award winner Bill T. Jones.

Producers Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter, Will & Jada Pinkett Smith and Ruth & Stephen Hendel are pleased to announce that Grammy Award-winning recording artist and former member of Destiny's Child, Michelle Williams, will join the national tour of FELA!
