That's a classic photo right there.
What a beautiful couple they were.
I see where Femi got his looks from.

Fela looks somewhat like Muhammed Ali here and I see semblance of her with Michele Obama.

Fela was a handsome man as well as his Mrs.

The only musician at the time who was fearless with his songs.

Truly a legend.

He didn't believe in our Lord Jesus Christ and didn't worship Him, how then do u expect 2 see him in paradise. Are u a learner?

Some ppl can be so annoying and dumb. sometimes when u see words like dt u should use ur common sense to knw dt d person probably missed an alphabet? Read ur last words if it makes sense (and u don hear oyibo to remilekun b4) what does dt mean? English corrector

Anonymous said...

I mean, I "heard" that she's American?

Anonymous said...

Thanks 4 ur correction, professor, but u know,anything is possible with naming a child, especially during that time in America, there was there this African conscious amongst African Americans bcos of their struggles to be accepted in d American society as equal to whites in America.
Also, example of people who are are Americans but have Africa names are:

Kanye West: K, is Kanye an Oyinbi name...no, but his parents gave him that name, which means "to mark" in ibo

Kwesi Mfume: K, u might not know this name if u haven't lived in America, but this guy was a civil rights activist back during d civil rights movements in America. If u don't know, his name is a Ghanaian name, n hearing that name, u might think that he's Ghanaian

Really? I beg these r beautiful people

Anonymous said...

Lol....very true! He's probably with the tupac and likes....Naija can make a legend of anyone sha! Fela aparrently started out a normal young man until the govt killed his mother plus the oppression in the country and he,like his brothers too, was obviously mentored by his parents not to tolerate any form of dehumanisation of man and his rights.so,he took up his best form of expression,music.while his brothers made impact In their own spheres.the Incessant imprisonment obviously worsened his drug problem but that family is a great one.wish parents still teach their children values and standing up for right.
