DOWNLOAD VIDEO: Wyclef Jean – Fela Kuti
The video is heavily inspired by the classic movie ‘Coming to America’
When he announced the imminent release of the song, a track off his eighth studio album, many thought it would contain some form of tribute to the Afrobeat legend.
However, the lyrics have nothing to do with the late singer, social and human rights activist, save for the part where Jean sang “Dance like Fela Kuti”.
The video, on the other hand, is heavily inspired by the classic movie ‘Coming to America’ which featured Eddie Murphy as the lead character.
Even Jean’s dance steps in the video bore little similarity to Kuti’s iconic moves.
