Performers at this year’s Felabration will be selected from the 400 artistes who have registered to perform.
Nigerian artistes numbering about 400 have indicated interest in performing at the 2019 Felabration scheduled to hold at the New Afrikan Shrine, Ikeja , Lagos.
The festival will hold between October 14 and October 20.
A member of the organising committee, who craved anonymity, made the disclosure on Wednesday.
Felaberation was founded by Yeni Kuti as an annual festival held to honour and celebrate her late father, Fela Anikulapo Kuti.
Reeling out the activities lined up, the source said several plans have been put in place to celebrate this year’s festival which has the theme, “From Lagos with Love.”
“Well over 400 entries have been received. We can’t disclose the artistes to perform now, as we have not selected.
“The list of those to perform and on which particular day will be circulated as soon as the selection is done.
“The portal will not be reopened, as it had been opened for adequate time to artistes who would like to perform at the event and that event would feature a symposium, music concerts, Afrobics dance competition, secondary school debates and other activities,” the source informed.
