Andrew Dosunmu To Direct Fela Kuti Biopic for the Big Screen

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.
