Fela Kuti Original Black President

Today the United States honors George Washington‘s birthday, as well as the long patriarchal line of other presidents with “Presidents’ Day.” We’re more than happy to take this moment to raise awareness of the greatness that is Fela Kuti – the original black president. As a revolutionary of his time, Fela Kuti became known as The Black President and a true representative of the people. Listen to “Everything Scatter,” the lastest release from the forthcoming compilation The Best of the Black President 2, out on Knitting Factory Records/Kalakuta Sunrise March 4. Also be sure to catch the FELA! musical on its US tour, which just kicked off in DC. BUY TICKETS HERE.
