Fela Kuti - ITT


Label Knitting Factory Records

Ships 14th October

‘ITT’ (International Thief Thief) was recorded following Afrika 70’s disintegration and the formation of Egypt 80. At the time of its release, the name of this album would have been recognized by any Nigerian as the acronym for International Telephone & Telegraph, Nigeria’s biggest telecommunications conglomerate. In this track, however, Fela used the acronym satirically. On the tracks Fela makes highly insulting, personal attacks on former Nigerian president General Obasanjo and Moshood Abiola, the local chief executive of the multinational corporations International Telephone & Telegraph and Decca Records
