Fela Kuti's House to be turned into a Meusem

Nigeria builds a museum for its music legend Fela Kuti
Thursday marks 15 years since the death of Kuti, the Nigerian Afrobeat musician who became a global icon thanks to his unique sound, his wild lifestyle and his harsh criticism of his country's corrupt military regimes. He is far from forgotten, both here and in many places abroad, and his family has been working to further preserve Kuti's legacy, including efforts to turn his last house into a museum -- the reason his bedroom was left as is.

He is far from forgotten, both here and in many places abroad, and his family has been working to further preserve Kuti's legacy, including efforts to turn his last house into a museum -- the reason his bedroom was left as is.
"It's gone beyond a Nigerian story," his son Femi Kuti, also a musician, said recently before taking the stage at the family's New Afrika Shrine club in Lagos. "It's gone beyond an African story. It's like jazz." Please comment after you read this article so we know your opinion. Thank you.
