Based on the life of a breakthrough Nigerian activist and a composer Fela Anikulapo Kuti, Fela! is a musical that has been entertaining the theatre goers for more than two years now. With its solid lineup of musical scores, and an inspiring plot, the musical has all the elements that are required to make any musical a successful one. The lyrics and music of the musical is mainly given by the Fela Kuti himself, while the credit of some additional music goes to Jordan Mclean and Aaron Johnson, with Jim Lewisís additional lyrics. Apart from the lyrics Lewis also co wrote the book of the musical along with Bill T. Jones. The plot of the musical keeps the audience on the edge of their seats as Fela is targeted by 1,000 soldiers, who want to end Felaís public performances at a night club called The Shrine, once and for all. ††††
