IGBE - Fela Kuti & Africa '70 (1973)



SYNOPSIS:


In this title "IGBE" (Sh*t), FELA describes a friend that betrays to be like "SH*T"...  someone you want to expel or excrete like SH*T.    He then evokes that in various Nigerian native languages to drive that home.

He also describes anybody that lacks self-respect as "sh*t" too.

Yeah-Yeah!
