Late Nigerian Afrobeat icon Fela Kuti's birthday was marked around the world on 15 October.
In November, the music legend will be celebrated in South Africa with a concert set to become an annual event.
On Weekend Breakfast, Refiloe Mpakanyane finds out more from saxophonist Femi Koya, who was born in Nigeria himself.
He says Kuti has been a musical inspiration since his childhood.
That music has been in my blood as an African legend, father of music...— Femi Koya, Saxophonist
Koya says considering there are many ways the musician is celebrated around the world, as someone now living in South Africa he wanted to find a way to celebrate Kuti locally on an annual basis.
He's calling the event "Felacantation" and says it will highlight not only Kuti's work, but African music in general.
I will do a tribute to Fela Kuti and remember the man, remember what he stood for, his musical legacy.— Femi Koya, Saxophonist
It's about sustaining and modernising African music to the present day and not losing the original element.— Femi Koya, Saxophonist
Felacantation will take place on 1 November at Afrobru in Maboneng from 8pm; tickets available at the door.
