Image: 1603469 The Western world was in the throes of peace, love and flower power as Nigeria descended
into Civil War in 1967. The rock scene that developed during the following three years of
bloodshed and destruction would come to heal the country, propagate the world-wide ideal of
the Modern Nigerian, and propel Fela to stardom after conflict ended in 1970.
Wake Up You! tells the story of this time, pays homage to these now-forgotten musicians and
their struggle, and brings to light the funk and psychedelic fury they created as they wrested
free of the ravages of the late 1960s and created thrilling, original Nigerian rock music
throughout the 1970s.
Presented in two volumes, each in a 100 page book full of never-seen photos along with
detailed liner notes by Nigerian musicologist and researcher Uchenna Ikonne (Who Is William
Onyeabor?), with all tracks fully licensed from the bands themselves.
