    I’m so over this argument. Didn’t join any band; he had Fela join him on Strativarious and then sat in on ONE HALF of this album. At a time I’d like to point out when Fela had been kicekd out of the United States and was getting in trouble with the Nigerian Government. Ginger’s presence opened up Fela’s music to many in the world who would not have heard of him (it’s why I bought the album).But you’re right: Fela should have been just left to be a local artist and activist. Who needs him?

We would love to hear your comments
