FEMI KUTI AND THE AFRICAN SHRINE
Lagos: the commercial hub of Nigeria and the most populated city in West Africa. A vibrant metropolis which appears to be one overwhelmed by congestion, crime, poverty to foreigners, and yet everyday, Lagosians get on with the serious business of having fun. Revellers party the night away at hangouts across the city but one of the most popular is the Afrika Shrine. Started by Afrobeat legend Fela Anikulapo Kuti during the height of the military regime, it is now run by his oldest son Femi, an afrobeat star in his own right. Esiebo gained exclusive access to photograph the nightclub and the musician who thrills audiences at his weekly Sunday night show.
