Fela Kuti was born on 15 October 1938 in Nigeria. His mother was a well known leader of the counrty's feminist movement and his father was a preacher. They hoped Fela would go on to be a doctor, but their son had other ideas and changed his university course within days of arriving in London forming Koola Lobitos, a highlife influenced jazz band.

After his start in the UK, he developed his sound playing in his native Nigeria but it wasn't until a US tour in 1969 that things really fell in to place for him. He realised, after reading Malcolm X' s biography that he wanted to play African music and his infamous sound was born.
