Fela Kuti: Africa’s Bob Marley – or an African Handel?


Fela Kuti found fame in Africa in the ‘70s – but at the time it eluded him elsewhere. As new audiences discover his music, Peter Culshaw looks back at the complex character. 
When I met Fela Kuti, the self-styled “Black President”, he was in a London hotel wearing only a pair of red underpants, smoking a massive joint, surrounded by three of his wives (he notoriously married 26 in one day) and his personal magician, a Ghanaian who called himself Professor Hindu. This was in 1984, and was the first interview I ever had published. At the time, Fela was a cult figure in the UK and I was working on one of the few articles about him. Back in Nigeria and the rest of West Africa, though, he had been a major figure for well over a decade; when he died Lagos came to a standstill after a million people turned up to his funeral.

Jackie Chan's Son Jaycee In Drug Arrest


The son of Hollywood actor Jackie Chan has been arrested on drug-related charges, Chinese state media say.
Actor Jaycee Chan, 31, and Taiwanese movie star Kai Ko, 23, were detained last Thursday, Beijing police said in a statement on their official microblog.
Police said both men tested positive for marijuana, with more than 100 grams of the drug found at Mr Chan's home.
Their arrest comes amid an ongoing crackdown on drugs which has already netted several celebrity figures.
Gao Hu, 40, who appeared in the 2011 Zhang Yimou film "The Flowers of War", was detained earlier this month for possession of marijuana and methamphetamines, state media said.
In June, Chinese President Xi Jinping called for "forceful measures" to tackle illegal drug use.
A government anti-drug advisor told the Associated Press news agency that Chinese celebrities were being targeted because of the "huge influence" their behaviour had on "their large numbers of fans".
Beijing Municipal Anti-Drug Office deputy director Jin Zhihai however, said that police were not specifically targeting celebrities.
"If there is an increased crackdown on drugs, the number of celebrity offenders will also rise," he told the Beijing Times on 14 August.
Last week, 42 artist management agencies in Beijing signed an agreement with police pledging not to recruit celebrities with reported drug use problems.
'Very big mistake'
Mr Chan, whose father Jackie was named an official "Narcotics Control Ambassador" by Chinese police in 2009, had been put under "criminal detention" for the suspected crime of "providing a shelter for others to abuse drugs", Beijing police said.
If convicted, he faces a maximum prison term of three years.
Mr Ko, accused of consuming drugs, had received a two-week detention term, his management firm Star Ritz Productions said.
"I feel very regretful, very sorry to all the people who support me. I've been a very bad example, I've made a very big mistake," he said in an interview broadcast on Chinese state television on Tuesday.
Beijing police also said two other people, a 36-year-old assistant and a 33-year-old suspected dealer, were detained in the incident.
Mr Chan's management firm M'Stones International apologised on his behalf for the "social impact" caused and said they would "supervise his rehabilitation and help him return to the right path".
His father Jackie has not yet commented on the arrest.

Sanitary Purchase On The Rise As Ebola Epidemic Threatens Lagosians

 

Just a few weeks after the deadly Ebola epidemic hit Lagos, top online shopping company: Kaymu.com.ng reports rise in purchase of sanitary supplies by Lagosians.

Following the demise of Patrick Sawyer, the Liberian born American who arrived at the Murtala Mohammed Airport Lagos on July 20 and died five days later, the awareness about the fatal virus has spread like wild fire.

This can be accredited to the prompt actions taken by the Lagos state government to inform Lagosians about the severity of the virus and the continuous coverage of the situation by local and foreign media.

According to a statement released by Kaymu, online search for hand sanitizer on the platform has increased by 130% in the past week and sales of hand washes and lotions have increased significantly.

Managing Director of Kaymu Nigeria, Evangeline Wiles, stated, “It is very encouraging to see that Lagosians are taking the news of this outbreak seriously.  Lagosians and Nigerians in general are advised to take to the precautionary measures communicated by health officials, such as frequently washing hands, to ensure the virus is contained and possibly eradicated.”

The Ebola virus is primarily transmitted through contact with body fluids of infected persons, with the skin and mucous membranes being the main routes of entry. As a result the public is cautioned to sanitize their hands and immediate surroundings as often as possible.

Meanwhile supermarkets in the Lekki area of Lagos State have recorded massive sale of hand sanitizers so much so that the demand far outweighs the supply.
According to the Minister of Health, Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu, one of the doctors that treated Sawyer, the casualty of the first recorded case of Ebola in the country, had contracted the virus, while another is showing symptoms and about seven other persons who came into contact with Sawyer, and had developed the Ebola symptoms, had been quarantined while 70 others were under surveillance.
