Fela Anikulapo Kuti – Water No Get Enemy | Mp3 Download
Fela’s saxophone brings to life a magical blend of Afrobeat and Highlife music genres on the second track of his 1975 Expensive Shit album. Fela was renowned for speaking against ruling and past governments of Nigeria, and this side B record provides a slight deviation from those hard hitting lyrics to a more philosophical message.
“Water No Get Enemy” contains mixed vocal lingo of Yoruba language and pidgin English originating in West Africa. It sees Fela emphasize the power of water literally and metaphorically, suggesting its importance to opposing ideology such as life and death.
