Video: Ghariokwu Lemi Talks Fela Kuti Album Art

July 12, 2010


Fela Kuti recorded and released dozens of albums, each with a specifically agitprop cover meant to elicit the same rebellious feelings as the songs between them. Lagos native and friend of Fela, Ghariokwu Lemi, is responsible for each and every one and recently sat down to go through a few of his favorites in commemoration of Knitting Factory Records' digital reissue of a huge chunk of Fela's catalog. One Lemi's favorites, Yellow Fever, is now available in a limited run poster (only 80) that comes with a digital download of the album (Johnny Just Drop is also available). On a side note, we would like Lemi to design the next everything for our everything.
