Femi Kuti - Beng Beng Beng

Music Television presents Femi Kuti

Femi Kuti is a Nigerian musician and the eldest son of the late great Nigerian music king and afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti. Femi was born in Lagos, Nigeria, the same place one of my favorite artists, Nneka, is from. The thing these three powerful artists share in common is their songs that exude their strong commitment to social and political causes. The region of Lagos, in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria, is a corporatist haven where politicians and the energy companies have cultivated an environment of crony capitalism which has led to the environmental destruction of the region as oil companies rape and pillage both the land, waterways, air and the downtrodden citizens of the region. The kinds of routine oil spills in the Niger Delta make the U.S. Gulf of Mexico oil spill by BP seem like just a little bit of spilled milk.

With that said, this happens to be one song of Femi Kuti's that is not so political. It's pure sexy Cuban infused Nigerian soul that is it's own universal language. Enjoy! GC
