Afro Beats Legend’s (Fela) Music was Influenced by This Drink

Kunu

Also known as kununzaki is very popular  throughout Nigeria, mostly in the north. The main ingredient is grain such as millet or sorghum, although it can be made from maize as well. The variety of the drink made from millet is brownish while from maize  appears whitish in color

Fela

Words on the street have it that legendary Afro beats crooner  Fela’s creativity was because amongst other things drank  kunu. It is alleged that he always drank it before starting work on a new album, as it stimulated the flow of ideas for music and lyrics in his mind. So the next time you listen or dance  to “Follow follow”, “Zombie” or “Overtake Don Overtake Overtake”, remember that kunu did the trick!
