About Expensive Shit. The song refers to an incident in 1974 in which the Nigerian police planted a joint on Fela Kuti in order to arrest him for narcotics charges. As the police converged upon his compound, Fela ate the joint. He was taken to a police station-the polices plan being that Felas faeces would reveal the narcotics once tested for THC.

Water No Get Enemy During the early 70s the Nigerian government and their cronies in the plice department consistently raided Felas communal family compound The Kalakuta Republic , viewing it as both a social and political threat.

Moni Two brilliant Fela classics. Hard to pick a favorite. Favorite track: Expensive Shit. Nemo Halperin. Nemo Halperin No. that is Fela Ransome Kuti and Africa 70. Because this musical collective, with frontman and spiritual leader Fela acting as both brain and heart, do form a unified body, a singularity of expression that commands you to dance, to be free, to realize that you are the master of your own fate which no government can command if you dont allow it to. Incredibly, despite the massive number of musicians comprising the Africa 70 the instrumentals dont sound overcrowded in the least. Saxophone and keyboard solos ride the rhythm section without becoming obtrusive, a difficult feat when both songs are over 10 minutes in length.
