"Finding Fela" tells the story of Fela Anikulapo Kuti's life, his music, his social and political importance. He created a new musical movement, Afrobeat, using that forum to express hisrevolutionary political opinions against the dictatorial Nigerian government of the 1970s and1980s. His influence helped bring a change towards democracy in Nigeria and promoted PanAfricanist politics to the world. The power and potency of Fela's message is completely current today and is expressed in the political movements of oppressed people, embracing Fela's musicand message in their struggle for freedom.
