Afrobeat mania

After interviewing and writing an article about Tony Allen in the recent past, I was rather fascinated to discover this blog.

Viva Afrobeat!!!

In the pantheon of Nigerian music history, Afrobeat stands heads above for me because of the political message Fela carried with it and the way it changed cultural entertainment to something that had political power. Afterall, those in power felt what Fela was saying through his music was annoying enough to warrant reprisals.
