Fela: Music is the Weapon (1982)

Fela Anikulapo Kuti nearly ran for president of Nigeria, established the 
autonomous zone of Kalakuta, and became the brightest star of afro-beat 
music.  Fela: Music is the Weapon not only features Fela’s powerful music 
and mesmerizing live performances, but pays equal attention to his 
political philosophies and the Nigerian political context in which he lived 
and created.
