In Honour Of The African Legend Fela Anikulapo Kuti

A moment of silence to Nigeria’s very own Fela. We take that back and say Africa’s very own. He was a legend and he passed away on the 2nd of August, 1997.

For the youngsters who just know the name Fela because he is the King of Afrobeat, Fela is a Nigerian multi-instrumentalist, musician, composer, pioneer of the Afrobeat music genre, human rights activist, and political maverick. He rocks!!! Still does because his legacy still lives on. Ask Wizkid, he copied his title ‘Expensive Shit’.


We would run down our favorite hits songs of Fela, hope you get to download them soon and witness the goodness  that was Fela.

– Gentleman

– Water No Get Enemy

– Teacher Don’t Teach Me Nonsense

– International Tiff Tiff

– Fefe Naa Efe

-Expensive Shit

– Yellow Fever

– Everything Scatter

Just in case our list doesn’t tally with yours, feel free to let us know your favourite songs from the Afrobeat master. 18 years after and we still honour you.

True legends never die!!!!
