Hey! everybody what’s goin’ on? Today we’re going to be takin’ a look at Fela Kuti.

The Wiki speaks for itself ~

But I wanted to talk about how he was a pioneer of the afrobeat genre. I sit here listening to it today, and, I’m just blown away. Like, just go to this video at 13:40 –>

He’s literally just scatting.

But it’s amazing! To me, he is the epitome of spontaneity in creativity. We have so much to owe to this artist. Sending my respects and appreciation to this man right here.
