The Kuti family has warn against unauthorized use of Fela's intellectual property.

Items like logos, designs and branded names including Felabration and more require permission to be used according to the legal representatives of Fela's estate.

This statement was issued ahead of a special Felabration edition that will hold at the Nottinghill Carnival on Monday August 28, 2017, to mark 20 years since Fela's death.

This clampdown takes effect in other parts of the world outside Nigeria.

Michael Jackson, Bob Marley and Mavin Gaye are some music legends whose intellectual properties are  jealously guarded.

Read, digest and tell a friend to tell a friend - the Kutis are not smiling.
