“A place to behold”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

Kalakuta Republic is an amazing place to visit. It symbolic reminder of the life of the owner, Fela is a lesson worthy of preserving for generations to come. Fela represented the vision and aspirations of every oppressed person in Africa and Nigeria.

“A Vivid Memorial of the Afro Beat King Fela Kuti”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

Any visit to the African shrine is not complete without seeing the Kalakuta Republic Museum.

It is the complete works, life and times of one of the greatest musician from Africa. Filled with historical photographs events and the his music at the background. This is a must see for ever Lagos visitors

“Fela's Music”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2013

Popularly known as the Shrine where Fela's son named Femi plays some if his afro music and some of the late father's. the setting is Local Nigerian and if you want to experience downtown Lagos, then put it on your list of place to visit. Try going with a local. Environment if free but can be hot and if u dont smoke then dont visit here. the local dancers are nice to watch
