Nigerian icon and Afrobeat originator Fela Kuti passed away 15 years ago but to this day his legacy lives on across the globe with his still-relevant, forthright political views and powerful music.
The complete works of Fela, consisting of almost 50 albums, are now being re-packaged, with in-depth track commentaries written by Afro-beat historian Chris May, and prepared for a three-batch re-launch between March and September 2013.
The re-release programme will be spearheaded on 4 March 2013 by the release of The Best Of The Black President 2, a 2CD collection with foreword written by Senegalese-American R&B/hip-hop artist Akon and featuring great tracks like Everything Scatter (click to listen)
