last night (11/23) in NYC Jiggaman attends the opening night of Fela! a Broadway play inspired by Nigerian Afrobeat pioneer Fela Anikulapo-Kuti and his music.

Jay Z was at the opening of Fela!. As one of the producers of the show, he says that the story of Fela! is one of inspiration, strength, passion and pain that needs to be told. We asked Jay Z what he hoped people walk away with after seeing Fela! He said that he hopes people recognize that life is full of adversity but a person is defined on how they react to that adversity and that he hopes that people are empowered by the story of the show.

Jay-Z ,along with Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith, helped co-produce & finance the play for its run on Broadway.

Props: B’wayTV & JZW
