Andrew Dosunmu (director of Restless City and Mother of George) is set to direct the upcoming Fela Kuti biopic. via OkayAfrica

i’m curious to know how Fela will be portrayed, but i trust (and love) Dosunmu and i think cinematography skills will do him justice. i’m also happy that an African director was chosen. let us hope, however, that they cast an African actor that actually resembles Fela to play him and not some American or British actor who will butcher a Nigerian accent. 

any thoughts?

any suggestions on who should play Fela?
