Fans may not see Fela Kuti, but his clothes will do.

The ceremony will also feature a performance by Femi Kuti with his Positive Force band and Seun Kuti with his Egypt 80 band.
A new song dedicated to the late Afrobeat maestro by 2 time Grammy Award-winning artiste, Lekan Babalola titled 'Mr. Lakaye' will also be released at the event.
