Music legend and son to the king of Afrobeat, Femi Kuti has revealed his all-time favorite song by Fela to be “Overtake Don Overtake, Overtake”.
“The horn arrangement, the melody of ‘Overtake Don Overtake, Overtake’ is fantastic. He talked about previously recorded songs on O.D.O.O. Fela was at a peak of a peak when he recorded the song”, Femi remarked.
Although Femi Kuti shared his admiration for Fela’s “Coffin for Head of State”, he insisted that “O.D.O.O.”, recorded with the Egypt 80 band, is his all-time favorite of all his father’s songs.
