Fela Anikulapo Kuti's residence to be turned to a museum

The one-storey building Fela built and lived until his death on August 2, 1997, will be turned to a museum.
The house, located at 18, Gbemisola Str., Ikeja, which is also the late Afro beat legend's final resting ground, will be called Kalakuta Museum and is scheduled for opening in October this year during the annual Felabrations event.

The Kalakuta Museum when completed  is expected to have an exhibition area, 5-room boutique hotel, a souvenir shop, a bar and stage and a roof-top restaurant among other things.

The home is being turned to a museum according to those behind it to preserve the history of an illustrious son of Africa, promote tourism, acquire, display and preserve artifacts, documents and records of the man referenced as well as those of his contemporaries of African ancestry.

NYC-1 says: Elvis Presley's Grace Land is still a tourist center till today. If only Nigerians know how to cherish their own. Fela Anikulapo Kuti will remain the greatest entertainer of all times in Nigeria. His music is ageless; his messages, undisputable. Unilag, should be named after him - if we give honor to whom honor is due. The idea of a museum in his honor is a 'home run' thought.
