TRACKLISTING

A Roforofo Fight 16:42

B Go Slow 17:25


Fela poetic use of broken English helped in resonating his message throughout Anglophone Africa. The lyrics of Roforo Fight illustrate Felas frustration at intolerant, violent human behaviour by depicting a fight that breaks out in the streets in Lagos. Go Slow is a 17:22 minute groove of first-generation funk featuring a rhythmic interplay so intrinsic to Felas Afrobeat. Lyrically, the song uses traffic jams in Lagos as a metaphor to critique the harmful social and environmental impact of urbanisation.
