Afrobeat creator, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, died on August 2, 1997 from complications related to AIDS.
Arguably the biggest musician that ever came out of Nigeria, Fela is remembered for his music, activism and unorthodox personal life.
Expectedly, family and fans across the world paid glowing tributes to the man known as Abami Eda on the 20th anniversary of his death.
