The FELA! Tour Has Gone Hip-Hop


Legend Stevie Wonder, Kanye, and Nas have all stopped by FELA! on tour in the past weeks and hung with the cast backstage. What they had to say about the show? Nas: "very important work." Yeezy: "inspiring" (he also invited the entire cast to a Watch The Throne show). Stevie Wonder - oh, just harmonized with Fela dancer Jacqui Dubois on an acapella ditty (see below). The tour, now in Los Angeles until January 22, is headed next to Detroit (get ready to shake it Motor City!). Get tix here.
