Fela Anikulapo Kuti was Africa's greatest music artist. He was very authentic. Words are not enough to describe my love for his music, for this reason I have ALL his CD's in my collection which I bought from HMV. In my opinion he sang better in Yoruba, even though I don't understand the language. I made a compilation of eight of my favourites and I titled it Fela's Timeless Classics:

1. Gbagada Gbagada Ogbogodo Gbogodo.
2.Black's man cry.
3.Who are you.
4 Buy Africa.
5.Fight to finish.
6.Jeun Koku(Chop 'n' quench)
7.Eko Ile.
8.Je'nwi temi.

All eight songs are in Yoruba, some with a mix of pidgin. I can connect to them. He was the only musician that will play a track for 30 mins and still hold you spellbound.

He sang our problems, he will always be with us through his music.

Bhu am not a fan of d smoking and all thos other things

Abami Eda the world will never forget you. The things you sang about are still happening. In fact, they are getting out of hand.
Continue to rest peacefully.

please you all should stop deceiving yourselves that when people die that they are resting in peace. more than 99% of all these people are in hell fire burning including some of your relatives and u guys are talking about resting in peace.......when you die and succeed after judgement then their comes peace.

The Abami Eda lives on. My top 3 from Fela's stable are:

* Beast Of No Nation
* Water No Get Enemy
* Teacher Don't Teach Me Nonsense

Not to talk of Zombie, Expensive Sh*t, Observation Is No Crime etc. I wish the best for his kids and grandkids.
