Femi Kuti Shares 'Politics Na Big Business' Remix ft. 2face Idibia & Sound Sultan

Femi Kuti drops a remix of "Politics Na Big Business" from his latest 'No Place for My Dream' LP, featuring 2face Idibia and Sound Sultan.


With this revisit of “Politics Na Big Business,” the first single off his latest album No Place for My DreamFemi Kuti blares an urgent call across spiky guitars and dallying horns: beware of deception. More specifically, Femi wants his fellow Nigerians to look cautiously at corrupt politicians as their country prepares for the upcoming general elections of 2015. To help him deliver this warning, the Lagos-raised singer/multi-instrumentalist brings Jos-born musicians 2face Idibia and Sound Sultan on the track to sing about the danger of unchecked trust. The “Politics Na Big Business” remix is of particular importance since the issue of corruption in Nigeria is pressing and, as a Sheila Cjukwulozie-written feature on the song explains, “has found a home in the everyday culture of the common Nigerian.” Femi then, as his father Fela did with his own, work seeks to rally people to awareness with this “Politics Na Big Business” remix, and he does so in a thrilling way.

Following Nelson Mandela's passing in December 2013, Kenneth Kaunda became Africa's last standing hero. Now with his passing on Thursday, June 17 — after being admitted to the Maina Soko Military Hospital in Lusaka earlier in the week — this signals the end of Africa's liberation history chapter.

It is tempting to make saints out of the departed. The former Zambian struggle hero did many great things. He was, after all, one of the giants of the continent's struggle against colonialism. Ultimately however, he was a human being. And as with all humans, he lived a complicated and colourful life.

Here are six facts you might not have known about him.
