Happy Birthday FELA: Puff Puff Pass!

Puff Puff Pass Fela tribute shirt in honor of what would be the Black President's 74th.


In honor of Fela Kuti's 74th (posthumous) birthday, we introduce "Puff Puff Pass," a tribute t-shirt hand drawn by Philly artist and homie Thom Lessner. This tee was inspired by Fela Kuti, his queens, and one of his favorite activities ... hey Fela, puff puff pass! 

Modeled in black by Rahzel Jr. (yes, THAT Rahzel's son!), and in green by ex-Roots guitar slayer Ben Kenney (currently bassist for Incubus), our newest Fela tee is sure to inspire vibed-out sessions of afrobeat induced bliss. Printed on our all new custom body soft knit tees for superior quality and comfort. Check out more new tees in the Okayafrica Store now.
