Elder's Corner is a music documentary film featuring the music, lives and times of Nigeria's pioneering and long forgotten musical heroes.
Set against the colorful yet gritty backdrop of Lagos and other parts of Nigeria, Elder's Corner follows their extraordinary musical journey through the nation's quest for self rule, a bitter civil war, power struggles, oil and riches.
With a ton of help from you all, we're steadily approaching our next milestone, the halfway point with a little over 16 days left in the campaign.
We've chosen to celebrate this feat with a fitting tribute to Afrobeat pioneer and Elder's Corner featured icon Fela Anikulapo Kuti, who would have turned 73 today.
Fela meant many things to those who knew him both up close and from afar. To some he was a rebel, rabble-rouser, lady killer, human rights activist, musical pioneer, GENIUS! His music and philosophies continue to inspire and astound listeners many years after his untimely passing. Here's what a few of his many peers and admirers had to say about the man, his myth and of course, his music.
