For me Iron Maiden deserves my vote not some drug-addicted, political thug & drunken sociopath that died in his prime due to poor life choices. The same misogynist that objectified we women.

Afrobeat legend Fela Anikulapo-Kuti has been nominated for the 2021 class of the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame. See previous thread here. https://www.nairaland.com/6410112/fela-kuti-nominated-2021-rock

He stormed into the lead after Nigerians began an online campaign to get people to vote for him.




However, votes from Nigerians have waned in the past few days and he has now been overtaken by Tina Turner.

I always listened to this song in full in the 1970s and '80s, but in the 2000s many people often chopped up the song into bits. Thankfully, with YouTube's new licensing system, there's an official Fela page and I can show you what I want you to hear.


You don't even need to listen to the whole song. I would like you to listen from the beginning, but my main aim is to get you to listen to the drum solo at the 2:05 minute mark. Please listen to that drum solo. Please, please listen to that drum solo. It'll also be nice if you listen from the beginning, so that you can get the context, but please listen to the drum solo.

This was the soundtrack of the SAP riots.

naptu2: From "Overatake Don Overtake Overtake" (ODOO)

My friend wan come buy fan
Him dey sweat when him dey sleep for room
Him dey for level 03
The fan na seventy-five naira

My friend him dey for low salary
Him dey try to save and save and save
Every time he nearly buy the fan
Government go add ten naira more
Every time he nearly buy the fan
Government go start one activity
Till the fan reach two hundred naira
My friend nearly die, he never die

My friend he no wan die
Die-die no dey for him dictionary
For where? Huh...
Him dey try to save and save again
Him save for one year and six months

Inside cupboard
Under pillow
Under, under cooking pot
Inside socks
Under carpet
Him dey on his way to buy the fan
When alarm come blow

Wiiiiiaaaaaaaa!

Government announce second tier
Everything come tear to pieces
Everything come expensive
Even water become expensive

Second bass, jare... pop!

Fan don become seven hundred naira
Me and my friend start to look ourselves
He remain small make my friend dey cry
Na laugh laugh he catch monkey
Na now he come understand him life
Enjoyment can never come him way
Na now him life dey go reverse
In Africa, him fatherland
One more time..


Chorus


I get my money
Plan my plan finish
Start to go for market
Start to go for shopping
Before I reach market nko o?
Government show don enter
My plan don spoil o
Government show don enter
My plan don spoil o

Overtake don overtake overtake
Heiya
Overtake don overtake overtake

My papa never took drugs, smoked irresponsibly, wearing pant like a deranged lunatic, fucking anything female that moved, littering the earth with hundreds of illegitimate bastards and dying shamefully of AIDS.

Let's overlook one another's ideological orientations and put aside our differences. Let's honour Fela, the great!!!

Let's vote him now and every day till April. Baba must win this. He is currently leading with a slight margin. We can do it ....

Brilliance, humour and logic from beautiful madness. That's one of the things I loved about him.

From "Movement Against Second Slavery" (MASS), this is Alhaji Alhaji (Stranger).

♪I
naptu2:
Our government go sell us away.
Selling the continent to make us slaves again

Dem come go Europe, white man wey dey for west, bring am come-o,
Bringing the religion Christianity to go chop us away,
Dem go Arabia, white man wey dey for east,
Bring am come-o Bringing the religion Islam to dey chop us away.

Islam and Christianity bring wars to Africa,
To this-e continent In the centre of the world,
Dem go bring confusion
To the centre of the world
Wetin dis government dey do no be for talk
Na for cry-o
Time don reach for us to call alhajis so . . .
I don travel many places
This the first time I don hear about.
I never hear "alhaji" as title
Only in the country Nigeria
You hear somebody be alhaji "Alhaji so-so-and-so . . ."
We cannot talk about what these governments do-we can only cry

CHORUS: Ye, ye, ye!


Brothers, come and hear this one: "Alhaji" na Arabic language
The meaning of "alhaji" na "stranger" .

(Fela) I Alhaji Umaru Dikko
(Response) Stranger Umaru Dikko!

(FELA): Alhaji Dasuki
(Response) Stranger Dasuki!

This na revelation. Revelation of our ancestors. Offender must point at himself. Brothers and sisters hear me. This is a revelation A revelation of our ancestors. The offender must point at himself. Brothers and sisters hear me:

Mothers and fathers hear me. Na stranger dey rule our country!

(Response) For inside police. For inside air force. For inside navy. For inside government

(Fela) Dem dey control am! Mothers and Fathers



naptu2:
This song is also known as "Alhaji Alhaji". I'm going to post two versions of the song. The beginning of the first video is 18+ (L).

It sounds like the audio in the second video was recorded at Shrine and you know what happens at shrine grin. As usual a brave (or stupid) fellow yabbed Fela and Fela focussed his attention on the guy and yabbed his life away. The yabbis is also 18+ (L).
