People that know me well + My Readers that have been around for a pretty long while already know that I’m gonna go on and on about Fela. Yes. I loved afrobeat before it became cool to be Afrocentric.

Fela is my favorite musician.

I mean, what’s not to love? Dude’s a LEGEND! He was an Activist in his own way. I only wish he didn’t die the way he did and when he did. He should’ve been around to sing about all the bullshit that’s going on in this our blessed country. I can imagine what he’ll be singing now when he was singing all that when the country was relatively good.

If you ask me, I’d say Fela was a Nostradamus in his own right because his songs are still apply. Very much so.

You shouldn’t be surprised that I like BlackMagic too. The musician that is. His music reminds me of Fela and he is just different. Just like I made my roommates in year 1 know/like Fela, my present roommates are already undergoing the ‘BlackMagic-Loving’ conversion process.

Its even funny how I’m a Fela fan and I’ve never been to his shrine or his new museum. I just need someone to take me. Lol.

Because I love Fela so much, I’m going to use my first paycheck as an House Officer (intern) to buy his complete works. I was originally planning to use the money to send my father to Jerusalem but he simply laughed and said; “There are many trips to pay for” when I suggested it to him.

Yeah. There you have it;

Fela! Is my guy *in Ice Prince’s voice*

People that know me really well know that I love Fela so much! I’m his biggest fan! Fela is like my spiritual pops..Yup! I love him like that! I got to love Fela cuz my parents ‘jammed’ Fela alot when I was little…Note that I wrote ‘jammed’ cuz that was in the past…My pops grooves to P-square and the likes more than I do..It’s quite annoying cuz sometimes he gives me updates on the latest songs..He wants to be young by force sha!

Did I mention that I first heard Flavour’s “Nwa Baby” In his car…Im talking September last year..T’was the driver that explained the concept of the song to me…If you dunno the song, or the concept of the song, Im so sorry I cant help you In any way cuz your last carrying is just legendary!

I deviate alot..

Fela! Is the reason why we are here..I dont really have a reason for writing this but I felt like so here I am!

Fela died on the 2nd of August 1997 (ie 13 years ago..i guess)…’They’ Said he died of Aids. THEY LIED! IT WAS A CONSPIRACY THEORY  *side eye* at Ota’s biggest bwoi* he knows what went down..

Im not happy that I forgot that today was his remembrance I would have put together something much better..Im even feeling worse cuz I wore my Fela Shirt courtesy @nonso_hysteria of Beats colthing (holla at him 😉 for yours) and it did not even occur to me that the next day was his remembrance 😦 O well I blame it on school!

For y’all who dunno Fela (these people deserve the gas chamber BTW)  Im gonna put up his Brief Biography and a Discography of my favourite songs that I recommend.

Brief Biography.

 Fela was born  In Ogun State, Nigeria On the 15th of October, 1938 ( He woulda been 73/72  now)..His mother as Olufumilayo Ransome-Kuti (y’all know her from social studies..first Nigerian woman to drive a car) and his pops was Rev. Ransome-Kuti…His brothers Okiloye and Beko Ransom-Kuti…Wole Soyinka was his cousin..

Very rebellious child…they sent him to London to study medicine but he studied Music instead…I guess the height of his rebelliousness was when he dropped Obasanjo and Abiola’s names in his hit track “ITT” I really loved that part..

The story of how he started his music and all is really long..If you’re really interested read it here

I said i was gonna be brief! Didn’t I?

So here are my favourite songs..you should download them..

1. Sorrow Tears & Blood (1977)

2. Army Arrangement (1985)

3. Lady

4. ITT (International Thief Thief) (1980)

5. Coffin For Head of State (1980)

6. Colonial Mentality

7. Yellow fever (1976)

8.  Confusion Break Bone (1975)

9. Teacher Don’t Teach Me Nonsense (1986)

10. Zombie. (1976)

11. Shuffering and Shmiling

Cheers!

PS: When I turn 18, I want someone to take me to the shrine!! #lowkey my pops won’t know! I can get HIGH legally! ^_^

No! This post is not about your sugar daddies or sugar mummies (parents for short) fighting with your boyfriend or girlfriend (where applicable)….If that is why you are here, kindly close your browser…..but please read on 😀

I was at a 50th birthday bash on Saturday…If I must say, the celebrant looked Thirtyish to me…As in Iya toh sexy mehn,hot as the fires of hell…..…I was dazed when they told me she was the celebrant…O well It is God’s doing in her life…may he do the same in our lives too o! Sorry for deviating but the lord is GOOD! Can I get an Amen??

Back to my story…

When we got there, where we = My Mum, Mum’s Friend and I, The party was half done …Yes we were “fashionably” late…F**k what MI said…Don’t be 5 minutes late when arriving…everybody knows the scope so be some kain 3 hours late 😀 you know that point when a parry climaxes and the grub starts to flow like………Don’t take me seriously o! When you get there and they tell you that it is only bottled water remaining Na your palaver o! If you are lucky to meet them stacking the chairs sef no be me send you!…we digress.

Sha the party was somewhat drab…I wasn’t too surprised cuz old people are not always full of energy (no offence to our friendly neighbourhood Orisha aka quiz master )…not always sha…Ayefele was playing sef so it was more of a sing along something..

Jejely, I ordered my Chinese rice…yes I’m tush like that… 😀

As I was munching, I was searching for signs of life…AHA! I found one…A lanky old lady that was trying to be the life of the party but was obviously #FAILING! I dunno if she was tryna jerk o! but she was making some really funny movements,even a buffalo woulda jerked better…Nobody even tried to encourage her…I was really sorry for her…

Next thing I know, The DJ played Cool and The Gang’s “celebration”….I looked up…. To my utter amazement, those people weren’t lifeless after all…The dance floor was so full it was as if some MogboMoyas had joined in (Who am I to talk…I did mogbomoya too) As in one person was either doing the shuffle, or the moonwalk…or just tryna make a funny movement you can manage to call dancing…even the people that did not know how to dance to the oldies were trying to komole…I trust my mum she did not dull..She was dressed as if she creep walked from the 70s so what do you expect?

I listen to a lot of oldies so I wasn’t quite lost at the party…@SimplySesmo finds it quite amazing that I still listen to oldies…what can I say? They make sense! At least I could make out Michael Bublé’s “Sway”, Christy Igbokwe of blessed memory’s “Omo mi Seun rere”, Adeolu Akinsanya’s “environmental sanitation” and a few others..So the oldies kept rolling in for quite a long while, only we young’uns remained seated watching the ‘oldies’ do their thing…All of a sudden, The DJ played Wizkid’s  “Tease Me” and the dance floor thinned out faster than Wizkid could say ‘baybay’… -_-
Some mummies tried to sway their hips to  “Don’t Dull” without success (i.e they dulled). So I guess the party went with the oldies..

I thought to myself;’Even Now, i’m not moved to dance to this song on my seat so what will make me jump up when I’m 50?’… So I tweeted; “I wonder if I’ll be this happy to hear Wizkid nd co when I’m 50 the way these old people are so happy to hear Cool and the Gang and co.”

I got only two responses which were negative..

So what do you think? Do you think you will jump up when you hear Flavor’s Nwa ‘baby’ 50 years from now? Or will Pakurumo still make you lose it? (Not like it does now anyway) Only time will tell..

Please share your thoughts in the comment box…thanks.

PS: I love Oraibi Wakama so much #nohomo….I also love @Dhamyhan too tho I don’t know why,must be his overflowing awesomeness..
