Saturday evening's TV schedules have a gem in the documentary on the life of Fela Kuti, a Nigerian performer who passed on in 1997 from and AIDS related condition. HIV continues to have a major impact on the development of African economies and carries stigma even in the twenty first century. Kuti was the father of Afrobeat, taking traditional sounds, making them more contemporary and having an impact globally. Despite his passing, Kuti's legacy remains strong and at 9pm, the BBC-2 documentary on his life charts his career and times. Important viewing for anyone interested in HIV's impact in African societies.
