UNDERSTANDING NIGERIA: REMEMBERING FELA
The first time I head his song was in Port Harcourt.I was ambling along Aba road when I heard '...International thief! thief! ...like Obasanjo and Abiola......'That was the Abami Eda's style.Many never agreed with his lifestyle or method of crusade for social change but he got his message out anyway.Remember he used his brand new Mercedes Benz saloon car to carry firewood when men exalted Benz to the highest heaven.He also ran for president at one time.Surely when the history of this generation will be written Fela Anikulapo will not be missing.
