Will And Jada Put On Their Producer Hats For Broadway Fela Show

- By Bossip Staff Categories: A "Lil Positivity", News, Seen on the Scene

Broadway’s “Fela!” got an added boost from two of Hollywood’s biggest stars. Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith joined in to help produce the musical, about Nigerian Afro-Beat originator Fela Kuti. Follow the jump for more pictures of Will and Jada with the cast.

This past weekend the cast and crew of Fela!, the stunning Broadway show about the life of Nigeria’s revolutionary singer, Fela Kuti, inventor of Afro-Beat, held a small cocktail party to welcome celebrity producers Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith to the team. Will and Jada watched the show, came on stage at the encore to support the cast, and hung out meeting and greeting everyone afterward. Another big celeb associate producer of the show, namely Mr. ?uestlover, was on hand for the festivities as well.

Jay-Z is also one of the producers for the “Fela!” musical. See, big things happen when the Scientologists join forces with the Illuminati…

We kid! We kid!

    @Slide

    Thanks for posting the ticket information. I am traveling to the east coast next month and I plan to see the show.

  • MzzQ2u

    I went Dec 2 when I went back home to visit… My man and I had heard about it and
    HAD to see it (it was opening week!) AMAZING! INSPIRATIONAL! ENTERTAINING! It was phenominal! We were very excited to support and be able to experience this show. If you are in NY or are out there visiting – definitely support the community and experience an amazing story.

  • LISTENUP

    Will Smith is aging WAY TOO FAST. He just does not look healthy. Don’t make my mind start wandering……

  • Mock Rock Star

    I saw a performance on The Colbert Report and I really enjoyed it. Maybe I’ll check it out when it comes to Atlanta…hope I haven’t missed it already.
