12 International artistes who drew inspiration from Fela Kuti – #1 & #9 even sang in Yoruba Lang. (With Pics)
11. 2Face Idibia
2Face Idibia needs no introduction as he is one of Africa’s biggest artist of this generation and continues to maintain his relevance. 2Face like most Nigerian acts has also drawn inspiration from the legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti.
The singer-songwriter sought and got inspiration from Fela while recording his sixth studio album, “The Ascension”.
2face, who now wishes to be addressed as 2Baba, sampled Fela’s “Army Arrangement” on “Jeje”. 2Face also drew inspiration for his ‘Pako’ song from the legend as well.
