Watch Drake’s new movie “Please Forgive Me” featuring Nigerian afrobeat legend Fela

Nigerian afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti is one of the most infuential Nigerian musicians of all time and even though long dead, his music and style continues to inspire several Nigerian and International acts today including Wizkid, D’banj, 2Face and now Drake.
One of the more notable parts of the short film is when Fela Kuti’s “Colonial Mentality” makes an appearance at the 13:20 mark. The track is off of his Sorrow, Tears and Blood album, which was released in 1977 and was written as a response to the Soweto Uprising of 1976. During the uprising, thousands of South African students protested the forced teaching of Afrikaans, the colonial language of Apartheid. The ominous sounds play as we get a look at the villain’s compound. Drake, of course, is not the only major artist today influenced by Fela, the late Nigerian saxophonist and vocalist behind the genre known as Afrobeat.
