Johnny Just Drop): Live!! At Kalakuta Republik (Originally released on Decca Afrodisia, 1977). Johnny Just Drop)’, Kuti lampooned Nigeria’s been-tos, people who had been to Europe or America to work or study and then returned ( dropped ) home with European pretensions and an inferiority complex about African culture. Lemi’s front cover portrays a suited-up been-to, dressed like a cartoon British toff, as he parachutes into a Lagos street to the bemusement of the locals. The back cover shows a more funkily-dressed been-to, wearing US-style.
From the bouncy good times of Belema to the deeper extended afro workout of Agboho this unique album stands out from thousands of others of it's time with a sound of its own that draws on many influences, with Congolese and latin touches to jazz trumpet and psychedelic organ lines. Easy Kabaka Brown (Opotopo was his nickname) was a versatile and eccentric musician who recorded two full length albums (this is the first) and only a couple of 45s. We at Soundway have deemed this record way too sweet to be forgotten, only to gradually ebb away and disappear with time.
Biography by John Dougan. Nigerian singer who was a key figure in the development of Afro-beat, blending agit-prop lyrics and dance rhythms as a medium for social protest.
