Let's Start
Fela Kuti Lyrics


We're gonna start our live recording right now
We gonna play for you our first tune tonight
It's gonna be about four tunes
And the first tune is called
O l'oun t'awa se n'yara
Je k'abere
Now, which means...
Let's start what we have come into the room to do
(Fela chuckles)
Right on

Here goes...
One, two, three

Ehn, ehn, eh, oh, oh

No one cares if you came here from Netflix. Just enjoy good music.

While a lot of you guys came from The New Netflix movie The Harder They Fall, just know that Fela Anikulapo Kuti (he changed his name from Ransom to Anikulapo, Anikulapo means I have death in my pouch) is a musical genius. He had cool music and was a lovely composer mostly for women and love but had to change his music and used it as a tool to fight the Nigerian Military Government as at then. He is still the only Musician with the highest number of Jail, Arrest and Torture. He is a REVOLUTIONARY, he is being celebrated yearly in Nigeria on a festival called FELABRATION. YouTube his name and watch some of his Iconic and Progressive Protest against Bad Governance in Nigeria and Africa as a whole.
