Fonko is a documentary television series narrated by Neneh Cherry, about social and political changes in the new Africa as seen through an avalanche of striking, innovative and visual music.
Nigeria is a country of extreme income gaps, deeply rooted corruption and violent religious conflicts. Here you find the most commercial music on the continent. But also fierce protest music, as artists are trying to carry on the work from the late Fela Kuti, one of the most hard core protest singers of all times.
