Recommended by many to be Fela Kuti's finest work, 'Gentleman' is a critique of African imitation of Western culture. The cover depicts a monkey's head on a suited body and, like the music, questions why people would choose to wear Western clothing in the African heat. In ‘Igbe’, Fela again questions cultural norms and taboos, this time talking about shit. And finally, ‘Fefe Naa Efe’ is Fela's tribute to Ghana, where he had many supporters and friends. An essential masterpiece.
