Let us give it to the Master, Pastor, Motivational Speaker, Activist, Soothsayer, Musician, Politician, Et Al,
Olufela Olusegun Oludotun Ransom Kuti aka
FELA ANIKULAPO KUTI.
I was going through some of his songs and was like Whao!!!!!
Come along with me as I reel out some of them in no particular order for you to see and feel that he had a vision for our dear country Nigeria.
All the songs produced even as at then still have messages for anyone who has ears today:
*Sorrow Tears and Blood
*Who No Know Go Know
*Coffin for Head of State
*Shuffering and Shmiling
*Trouble Sleep Yanga go Wake am
*Beast of No Nation
*Teacher Don’t Teach me Nonsense
*Confusion Break Bone
*Mr Follow Follow
*Black Man’s City
*Swegbe and Pako
*Jeun Ko Ku
If you know the lyrics of any of these songs could you please match them up with happenings today.
For “Eko Ile”, no be the “Underground System” wey make Dem “Jeun Ko Ku” so tey “Confusion Break Bone” nah im make us come say please “Teacher Dont Teach me Nonsense”.
Dem come release “Unknown Soldier” wey don cause plenty “Sorrow Tears and Blood”, we no be “Swegbe and Pako” o for this our “Black Man’s City”, we no be “Mr Follow Follow” nah “Gentleman” we dey do before wey “Trouble Sleep Yanga go Wake am” up, all our “Shuffering and Shmiling” don do.
Now “No Agreement” again, as “Who no Know go Know” because we dey “Carry Coffin for Head of State” straight to “Alagbon Close”!!!!!!!!!
Fela the Great!!!!!!!
