Ever since the death of the music legend, his children have been hosting an event to bring his memory to people, especially the new generation who are just coming up. 

The event was called "Felabration" and the main host of the event is the first daughter of the legend named Yeni Anikulapo Kuti. 

At present, the event has started and it is going to take a whole week at the African shrine that is situated at Ikeja.
