    This was a great musical and it’s one not to be missed! I didn’t know much about Fela before the musical, and now I’ve researched and learned alot. Much to my surprise, his son is playing at a music festival I’m attending!

    , No, I booked my fihlgt online and rode the plane. Oh and another one I also get is Do you still live in teepees. Which is wrong cuz I’m not a plains Indian that you see on those old black and white western videos but rather Navajo and our traditional home is the hogan. All in all, I agree with ya on your blog about your view of stereotypes. But sometimes, you find a person that embodies the stereotype and you can’t help but smile. And as for the Japanese one. I gotta do some research of my own to see if it is true. Haha. J/K.
