    I had heard of him as being a major influence to Most Def and also Bibi Tanga

    Supposedly the father of modern Afro beats

    Pretty good IMO...the sax makes it a lock for me

    Saw the play Fela a couple of years ago. He was a political activist against the Nigerian gov't. His son Femi is pretty talented as well.
