10 Music Videos From Andrew Dosunmu, The New 'Fela Kuti' Director

The best music videos from Fela Kuti biopic director Andrew Dosunmu.


At Okayafrica HQs, we've been planning our weekends around showtimes for Mother of George, the latest release from Nigerian filmmaker/photographer and music video director Andrew Dosunmu. We're already fans of his debut theatrical release Restless City, but in the aftermath of this week's huge Dosunmu-related news, we wanted to take a closer look to get a sense of what to expect from the upcoming Black President biopic. Below are ten music videos that best create a sense of the Fela Kuti director's rich aesthetic, from Kweli in Lagos to an empowering portrayal of Les Nubians' celebration of the afro.
