New Femi Kuti Album
Femi Kuti - Africa for Africa
Nigeria’s other national music, Afrobeat, is in safe hands with Femi Kuti. Like his father, he taunts Nigeria’s rulers: neither “Bad Government”, “Can’t Buy Me” nor “Obasanjo Don Play You Wayo” pull their punches.
The songs are dispatched with punk-like brevity (especially by the standards of the genre). The pan-African sentiments of the title track are driven home by a slow keyboard strut. “Make We Remember” namechecks liberation heroes from Marcus Garvey to Mandela, by way of the old Fela.
