Na Osageyfo Kwame Nkruma be the great one
I don sing song for the great African men
I don sing song against African thieves
I don sing song against African thieves
Na Obasanjo be the biggest thieve
I sing about and Abiola 
I don sing song against African thieves
Ah many African young people today 
Dey no know anything about Kwame Nkruma;To know Nkruma
Yeye leaders no fit dey;To know Nkruma
Yeye President no fit dey;To know Nkruma
Africa quality go show;To know Nkruma
Prosperity go dey flow;To know Nkruma
African pride go dey shine;To know Nkruma
Yeye leaders wey e dey ; To know Nkruma
Good good things go dey happen ; To know Nkruma
Good good things go dey happen ; To know Nkruma
Good good things go dey happen ; To know Nkruma
Good good things go dey happen ; To know Nkruma
Good good things go dey happen ; To know Nkruma

When one good man want rise for Africa today
Bad leaders dey go wan finish am o
When one good man want rise for Africa today
Useless people dey go wan finish am o

Dem go plan against am
Lie against am

You no see Idi Amin den finsih am o
You no see Ben Bella den finsih am o
You no see Mandela as dey want killed am
You no see Beko as dey want killed am

Everywhere all over the world 
Young people dem go dey look up to leaders
Wetin leaders do young people go dey do
One good thing African people dey do
Few of dem dem go gather together
Den go start one club
Dem go dey contribute money together
Dem go dey share the money wey dem dey contribute
Once everything is by turn by turn
One good thing about this matter be say
it is in the African trandition 
For people to trust dem self

Where is SANKARA story o jare Yes o
One Afrikan leaders dey today Yes o

When e reach Sankara's turn to be chairman
African leaders dem start to fear 
The underground system in their lifes
This one coruption and destruction
Mismanagement of the mind don start
Underground that is always misinstructs
That comot SANKARA from his turn
Nigeria,Ivory Coast and Senegal
Dem come show the clour of their mind
When e reach Sankara's turn to be chairman
African leaders dem start to fear 
The underground system in their lifes

Since I dey young for my country Yeye o
Those people i don understand
Since the time i don grow up o Yeye o Yeyeye

When e reach my turn for turn by turn
When my turn by turn for chairman reach
When e reach my turn for turn by turn
When my turn by turn for chairman reach
The chairman na by turn by turn 
The money all by turn by turn
The chairman na by turn by turn
All na by turn by turn
The chairman all by turn by turn 
The money  all by turn by turn
The chairman all by turn by turn
All na by turn by turn
All by turn by turn don turn to mess

If dem kill SANKARA nko
Dem shoot him today e no go possible tomorow
Dem shoot him today e no go possible tomorow
Dem shoot him today e no go possible tomorow
Dem shoot him today e no go possible tomorow
If dem kill SANKARA nko

Dem shoot him today e no go possible tomorow
If dem kill SANKARA nko
Den No fit kill hin spirit o
Dem shoot him today e no go possible tomorow
If dem kill SANKARA nko
Den No fit kill hin spirit o
Dem shoot him today e no go possible tomorow
If dem kill SANKARA nko

It was an honor for me to be part of this recording ..guitars..my last recording with the icon Fela Anikulapo Kuti at S,O.S. Studios in Manhattan before he passed to great beyond....around July 1991..There was no 2nd take...the whole band was tight..there was no room for mistake...straight analog recording..other songs includes Pansa Pansa...Can't remember the rest..probably unreleased yet.. ..Kaleta.

The great Leon Kaleta Ligan. I troway salute

Paul Young

Very lucky you. Cherish it forever.

Rhapsody Rhapsody

Arguably one of the best tracks of the prophet. Watched it live a few times and Fela danced so much like there was no tomorrow....The configuration of the instruments were unique as it was a fast running track and Fela brought back his loud vocals from yesteryears in this song... Fela lives on

Joe Mcguire

Wow, powerful and amazing testament brother, could not agree more Fela has guided me towards a higher calling in my life, I love this man and his message Long live Fela!

Ernest Whetstone

I wanna say Hello to all my FELA, Brothers from all over the world, FELA has brought us together through his Music, I believe he would be Sad,to see this day and age that we still have not learned to live and come Together.

Tavarinho

Hello from Portugal, Fela is the King, a good King :)

Frank Prince

Hello from Hungary :) Fela is the best!

Dennis Adeyemi

Arguably the best entertainer/musician that ever lived bar none...
