WOW, WOW, WOW! This is brilliant news! First off, Fela Kuti’s story being brought onto the big screen AND Andrew Dosunmu is directing it, with Chiwetel Ejiofor starring?!
I saw Fela on stage, which exhibited some of the best performances that I’ve ever had the pleasure of witnessing in my life, thus far. I can only imagine how Kuti’s story will be translated on screen. This is going to be splendid. I smell Oscar.
p.s. Watch this gorgeous trailer of Dosunmu’s latest, “Mother of George”. He’s on a roll.
