Late Afro-beat pioneer, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti has been inducted into the 2022 Black Music and Entertainment Walk of Fame.

The Black Music and Entertainment Walk of Fame, located in Atlanta, Georgia, started in January 2021, to honour African Americans with a monument for their achievements in entertainment.

The walk of fame is located in the historic Downtown Atlanta area, on the sidewalks of Martin Luther King, Jr Drive and Northside Drive.

Other inductees include Smokey Robison, Berry Gordy, Cicely Tyson, Ray Charles, Tyler Perry, Yolanda Adams, Lionel Richie and others.

Fela was recently announced as one of the 17 nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction for 2022.

The organisers released the list on Twitter. This is Fela’s second nomination. The music legend was nominated last year.

Other nominees include Indie auteur Beck, Pat Benatar, Kate Bush, Devo, Duran Duran, hip-hop star Eminem, synth-pop duo Eurythmics, Judas Priest, MC5, New York Dolls, Dolly Parton, Rage Against the Machine, Lionel Richie and pop singer Carly Simon.

The Rock and Roll Class of 2022 will be revealed in May 2022, with the ceremony itself taking place at a yet-to-be-announced date and location.
