I think the full name is ‘Oluwafela’ and it literarily means ‘God has eaxpnded wealth’. As a Yoruba woman I was brought up to believe that ‘names follow u’ (thats the best I can do for a direct translation of the Yoruba idiom). As a result of this I don’t believe in naming children after people because really no one is perfect. If you like the meaning of the name, please go ahead and name ur child ‘Fela. When people ask why, tell them your child is so named because you identify with the meaning of the name. Leave ‘Fela the artisi out of it.
