Kahli Abdu's Fela-Inspired Mixtape 'Ministry of Corruption'

Kahli Abdu shares the Fela Kuti-inspired mixtape 'Ministry of Corruption'

Rising Nigerian afrobeat/hip-hop artist Kahli Abdu recently released Ministry of Corruption, a mixtape inspired by Fela Anikulapo Kuti. While every track on the mixtape samples the late afrobeat king, the inspiration goes deeper as Kahli’s lyrics are hard-hitting, political and socially conscious. The artwork for the album was put together by the Nigeria-based Graphic Research Department. Listen and download Ministry of Corruption and check out more of Kahli here.
