Video: Fela! performs "Upside Down" on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon




Members from the hit Broadway musical Fela! sat in with ?uestlove and the gang on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night. If you didn't know, Fela Kuti "was like the James Brown, Bob Dylan, and Mohammed Ali of Africa all wrapped into one guy." Nice one Fallon. The cast performed "Upside Down" from their hit Broadway Show; if you haven't seen it yet, you should. Sahr Ngaujah plays a talented and convincing Fela Kuti both in song and persona. Plus, how could the show be bad with Antibalas playing the music, and ?uestlove, Will and Jada Smith, and Jay-Z all having their hands in the project? Watch the video here. - Eric Sandler
