American record producer, Swizz Beatz (who has written hits for some of America’s biggest artistes including Beyonce and Jay-Z) recently paid tribute to Fela Kuti by blending some of his biggest hits with seven Fela Kuti songs. Our favorites are the Get me bodied (Beyonce) mix and the Money in the Bank mix. Take a listen to both of them below.
