Fela misses out on induction into the Rock and Roll hall of fame

Fela misses out on induction into the Rock and Roll hall of fame


The inductees are Jay Z, Foo Fighters, Carole King, Todd Rundgren, The Go-Go’s and Tina Turner. This marks heartbreak for Nigerians and Africans, who got Fela into second behind Tina Turner on the fans ballot.

  • Mary J. Blige
  • Kate Bush
  • Devo
  • Foo Fighters
  • The Go-Go’s
  • Iron Maiden
  • Jay-Z
  • Chaka Khan
  • Carole King
  • LL Cool J
  • New York Dolls
  • Rage Against The Machine
  • Todd Rundgren
  • Tina Turner
  • Dionne Warwick

In the article, Pulse Nigeria noted that, “Inductees are chosen by an international voting body of more than 1,000 artists, historians, members and rock experts of the music industry. Starting in 2012, fans were given the privilege of participation.

“Until April 30, 2021, fans can cast their votes for who they think should be inducted from the 2020 class. The top five artists in the fans’ ballot then get counted as a single vote alongside the 1,000-plus other ballots.”

As it turns out, online voting never really counted for much.

Clarence Avant is also up for the Ahmet Ertegun Award; LL Cool J, Billy Preston and Randy Rhoads are up for the Musical Excellence Award while Kraftwerk, Gil Scott Heron and Charley Patton are up for the Early Influence Award.
