Andrew Dosunmu will direct Focus Features’ drama Fela Kuti, a biopic about the father of Afrobeat and most beloved multi-instrumentalist musician.

Andrew’s style has set him apart from the mainstream; with his most recent film « Mother of George » starring Isaach De Bankolé and Danai Gurira he made quite a name for himself. Based on the source material Michael Veal’s 2000 book Fela: The Life and Times of An African Musical Icon, the film will chronicle the life of Fela, who was not only one of the founders of the musical movement of Afrobeat, a fusion of jazz, funk, psychedelic rock, and Yoruba chants and rhythms, but also pushed boundaries in different ways, from politic to life, to art in the 1970s.
