Fela: The Musical Rebel (Paperback)
Fela: The Musical Rebel, is a book written by an international journalist of repute, chronicling the musical career of Fela and his how he deployed music as a weapon for social justice and political activism in Nigeria, for decades. Unlike other musicians of his generation, Fela opted to downplay on praise-singing and the massaging of the ego of those in power. He sang about human write abuses, corruption, imperialism, and mismanagement. A peep into the contents of his musical composition, says a lot about how Fela used music as a weapon for the liberation of the Nigerian masses from despotic regimes and political awareness for the hitherto timid masses. This book is another collector's edition from this brilliant and celebrated author.
