The king of afrobeat has a new digital home at the relaunched Fela Kuti website.

"This website is a homage to Fela, telling his story through the eyes of those who knew and loved him, from near or far," a statement reads. "Anecdotes, blogs, features, photographs, videos, memorabilia and his music; powerful, ever-present, effervescent. Timeless symphonic funky epitaphs to his genius and his humanity. At his funeral one million people chanted 'Fela will live forever!' How right they were!"
