re: an eye opening account of music and politics of Nigeria
This is a great documentary that serves as a brilliant introduction not only to the amazingly funky rhythm's of Fela's contribution to music i.e. Afro-Beat, but also to the ragged state of African Politics.
Fela was a brilliant musician but in addition to this he offered a vision of a new Nigeria that was free of totalitarian control and promoted an African identity free from western influence.

Check it out.
