Not surprise. As usual Nigerians are never able to keep up with anything. grin

Don't insult Nigerian. That Fela is able to maintain a top spot is due to online resilience of her youth. We have a huge idle population who exploit social media as option.

Tina Turner shouldn't be struggling the top spot with Fela. Not only her, others behind her are also deserving of a place above the Afrobeat legend. This is rock n roll bro. Fela trail many foreign artist here. Ha ha

Naptu Im not happy with you at all.
I've always respected you because of your historical threads which I benefit from but now it seems you are hating on me just because I don't agree with you on Fela. That's sentimental hope you know?

Now you are bringing up mundane things against me. Things that hold very little weight.

Who know your PAPA.... At least he was never an hypocrite who hides what he does... Anytime I'm on the PIANO and I strike some Afro chords, then I always understand the feeling the WHITEMAN feels to come for his show... Music Is beyond Race, skin Colour and Gender... The same way Jazz started in New Orleans by African Americans... I'm not a fan of his lifestyle though, but the Man Fela was a Genius...

Who do you think voted Fela up there, foreigners? Nigerian is virtually competing with the rest of the world on this. We have a huge young idle population with massive online presence, that why Fela could compete in top five. Anything beside this, the rock n roll should go to Tina Turner, Iron Maiden, food fighters and others
Re: Tina Turner Overtakes Fela In Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Vote. by naptu2: 9:27am On Mar 10
Ginger Baker was reputed to be the best rock drummer in the world. When he came to Nigeria Fela asked him, "You are the greatest drummer in the world?" Then he gave him a talking drum and a talking drum stick and told him to play. Ginger Baker didn't know what to do with it.


naptu2:


17) Fela Anikulapo-Kuti ft Ginger Baker – Live! (1971)

Ginger Baker is an English drummer and founder of the rock band Cream. He spent a lot of time in Nigeria in the 1970s, recording and studying African music and he became a good friend of Fela Anikulapo-Kuti. You can see some videos of his interactions with Fela on YouTube. They are taken from his documentary Ginger Baker in Africa.
He was instrumental in settling the rift between Fela Anikulapo-Kuti and Paul McCartney. Paul McCartney was bored with recording in the UK and so he decided to record his album “Band On The Run” at EMI studios in Apapa, Lagos in 1973. (You can read about everything that happened during McCartney’s visit on this thread https://www.nairaland.com/1387857/foreign-local-musical-tributes-nigeria ) . McCartney went to watch Fela play at the Shrine, but Fela confronted him and accused him of coming to exploit and steal African music.

Fela had good reason to be concerned. James Brown toured Nigeria in 1970. Fela’s legendary drummer, Tony Allen claims that James Brown sent his arranger, David Mathews, to check him out and that David Mathews took notes about how he played. James Brown’s bassist, William “Bootsy” Collins said that they went to Fela’s club (the Shrine) in Lagos and they were amazed by what they saw.
“I mean, this is the James Brown band, but we were totally wiped out! That is one trip I wouldn’t trade for anything in the world”.
In another interview he said, “I thought THEY were the greatest, period. Even before I got into the James Brown band, the James Brown band was number one to me. But once I got there and saw Fela and them, then I had second thoughts about it. . .when I heard these cats, it was like another dimension. . .a deeper feel to me. . .it was like, ‘Man, this is IT. We gotta try to be like this!” [laughs] (read more here http://afrofunkforum..com.ng/2006/04/felajames-brown-connection.html?m=1)

So Fela thought that Paul McCartney had also come to steal African music without giving anything back or crediting the source of the music. Fela also went to EMI studios to confront McCartney. Everything was resolved when McCartney and his group played their music for Fela so that he could hear that there wasn’t any African influence in it. Ginger Baker was also able to bring them together and he also invited McCartney to record at his studio in Ikeja.

Tony Allen is probably the most famous former member of Fela’s band. Fela writes the music for his band and all the members of the band must play what he has written. Dele Sosimi (former keyboardist for both Fela and Femi) gave an example in a BBC interview in the early 2000s. He said that they would be rehearsing and Fela would suddenly stop the band. “Who’s that?” he would shout and when he has identified the person that played the offending note, he would order the manager to deduct two weeks wages from the person’s salary. They must always play what Fela has written.

However, it was very different with Tony Allen. Fela would compose the melody and bring it to Tony Allen and ask him, “What can you play to this melody?” and Tony Allen would play something and Fela would go, “Yeah! Yeah! That’s it!” Tony Allen was not just the drummer of Africa 70, he was also the musical director of the band.

Some of my friends who were drummers have nicknamed Tony Allen “the Octopus” because they say that he drums with his hands, elbows and feet, as if he has eight limbs.

In 1978 Fela married 27 women at a go. He also set up a political party called Movement of The People, in order to contest in the 1979 Nigerian presidential elections. Tony Allen said that he also noticed that a lot of strange people started hanging around Fela. He decided that Fela was no longer serious and left the band. Fela had to hire two drummers to play the rhythms that Tony Allen singlehandedly played. Tony Allen has lived in Paris, France for a long time and he records and plays music over there.

There is a track on this album called Drum Solo. It is like a drum battle between Ginger Baker and Tony Allen. Ginger Baker is drumming in the European style while Tony Allen is drumming in the African style. It’s my favourite track on the album.

The first video is of the whole album, so only watch it if you have enough data. The second video is of Drum Solo, the battle between Tony Allen and Ginger Baker.

Your Papa also did not have any impact in this life. With his cool and calm demeanor as a gentleman that did not guarantee him success in this life. You are a glaring evidence of his gargantuan failure. Compared to the maestro himself whose self styled life transcended into his art, his music and politics, your father was a nonentity who could not even do basic things like raising a daughter.

Here is a man that has done more for the country than your whole family put together but you can’t see pass his tribe hmm appalling is an understatement. Well its not about him, its bout who you are. The same drug addict that fought for good governance for you. So that you can have a little semblance of safety when you step out of your house in your beloved country called Nigeria.

No need to call you a dead brain tribalistic bigot. Just know you have a very poor mind, its not an insult; you really do.

Mention one great man in your family (you can go as far back as 10 generations), I am sure there is not a single one the world knows. You can see the reason why even your future generations would die without anybody knowing they ever lived, you despise greatness.
