This Sneaker Art draws inspiration from works of the legendary Lemi Ghariokwu, a Nigerian artist and designer who is most renowned for providing many of the original cover images for the recordings of Fela Kuti.
Fela Anikulapo Kuti or simply Fela was a Nigerian multi-instrumentalist, musician, composer, pioneer of the Afrobeat music genre, human rights activist, and political maverick.
That year – 1970-71 – Fela set a pace
which was incredible, not only in terms of his musical growth but also
his philosophical and ideological trajectory.
The issues he raised
as he discussed the lyrics of his songs grew increasingly topical, and
he began the form of public speaking which he termed ‘yabis’ in which he would excoriate government officials for their inefficiency, or preach a new form of freedom of expression. Do Africans have the freedom of speech and expression without fear?
