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.

Dying Lagoons Reveal Mexico’s Environmental Racism

In the heart of a traditionally Black and Indigenous use area in Southwest Mexico, decades of environmental destruction now threatens the existence of these communities.

On an early morning in September 2017, in a little fishing village in the Pacific coast of Oaxaca, called Zapotalito, thousands of dead fish floated on the surface of the Chacahua-Pastoría lagoons. A 7.1-magnitude earthquake, which rattled Mexico City on September 19, was felt as far down as Zapotalito, and the very next morning, its Black, Indigenous and poor Mestizo residents, who depend on the area's handful of lagoons for food and commerce, woke up to an awful smell and that terrible scene of floating fish.
