Femi Kuti, Sandra Izsadore Lead Fela-Worshipping Afrobeat Band At #FelabrationWith7UP

Fela’s American friend and partner, Sandra Izsadore (formerly Sandra Smith) took the stage in an unusual manner when she joined Newben Afrobeat Band from Chile and Femi Kuti to perform her song with Fela, ‘Upside’.

The Chilean Afrobeat band, with their sonorous voices and energetic movements, reminiscent of Fela on stage, described why they loved Abami Eda and all he stood for. In worship of the Afrobeat legend, Femi Kuti led the band in paying homage to Fela with burning candles.

This band is not alone in their worship of the Afrobeat founder, as Femi also explained that there are more people around the world who literally worship his late father Fela.
