In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we visit Kalatuka, the Lagos, Nigeria, home of iconic musician Fela Kuti. In 1970, he declared it an independent state. In 1977, it was invaded by the Nigerian Army.

Our podcast is an audio guide to the world’s wondrous, awe-inspiring, strange places. In under 15 minutes, we’ll take you to an incredible site, and along the way you’ll meet some fascinating people and hear their stories. Join us daily, Monday through Thursday, to explore a new wonder with cofounder Dylan Thuras and a neighborhood of Atlas Obscura reporters.
