The 2020 edition of the annual Felabration is set to hold between October 15 and 17 and has promised electrifying performances from top music artistes.
Felabration is an event that commemorates the life and times of legendary music star, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.
Unlike the previous editions, the Felabration 2020 will be held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic and will be streamed across social media platforms.
AllNews gathered that the event will commence with a traditional symposium to examine topical issues affecting Africa.
Persons like Arikana Chihombori, the former permanent representative to the African Union Mission in Washington DC, Kweku Mandela, and Dele Farotimi, lawyer and author will be speaking at the symposium.
The opening event, christened ‘Colomentality’, will be hosted by Vincent Magombe, a Ugandan media personality.
Another highlight to be expected from the event is the ‘Dress like Fela Challenge’ festival which usually involves participants impersonating Fela Kuti with the winner expected to win a grand prize of N50,000.
