The Queens









At one point Fela Kuti had over 20 wives, who were also his dancers and singers. They were known as The Queens. These women stuck by him through the unimaginable. There should have been an entire documentary based on them, but you know how it goes. We could have learned so much about the meaning behind the amazing clothes, make-up and dances that they put together. Watch Fela Kuti: Music is the Weapon if you are intrigued.
