When I am feeling rebellious, his songs are my go to, when I want to relax, the music is so soothing to my soul. No wonder he described it as the “underground spiritual game”.

You are right... Please also check out Beast of No Nation by Fela...

BabaStiletto

...listen very carefully - in this tune, Fela clearly identifies and addresses "globalisation" as a problem for countries throughout Africa. He sets out the MO used by "multinationals" when they set up in developing nations (with the collusion of corrupt officials) - all done with the clever use of metaphors. Note that this tune was released way back in the '70s, long before those terms crept into contemporary usage as bywords for corporate greed and inhumanity. Epic sometin.

...Fela was talking about the methodology used by powerful foreign multi-nationals (with the collusion of locals) to rape Africa, @Christopher Ayettey - and yes, he cited Abiola and ITT as examples.

So you are right in that Fela was talking about Abiola, but it is more important to understand the context within which Abiola fits in. Abiola's example occurred in Nigeria, but across Africa, the same scenario was replicated (and unfortunately continues to be replicated).

Hope this helps.

Christopher Ayettey

I thiught he was talking About abiola

There was an American company by the same initials.... International Telephone and Telegraph that had a multi billion dollar contract to redo the Nigerian telephone infrastructure. The deal stunk so much that it's Nigerian link man (Abiola) was immediately rewarded with the vice presidency of ITT ( Africa and middle east). Fela, as expected, couldn't resist the urge to lampoon the pair.

mauricio pardo

It's the same!!
