February 18, 1977: Fela's Kalakuta Republic Was Destroyed By Nigerian Army

Kalakuta Republic now "Fela Shrine" was founded in the 1970’s. After the release of the album, ZOMBIE by Fela in 1977, Nigerian government was infuriated by the criticisms the songs connoted. Fela exposed the
evils of the military government on Nigerians and the then Head of States Olusegun Obasanjo wasn’t happy about it. Obasanjo ordered the beating of Fela, his mother, Olufunmilayo Ransome- Kuti was thrown out from window which led to her death and Fela Shrine (Kalatuta Republic) was burnt down.
It was on this day, February 18, 1977, 40 years ago, that this ugly incident happened.
Continue to Rest In Peace Fela & Olufunmilayo Ransome- Kuti. Amen.
