Coffin For A Head Of State-Unknown Soldier
These albums were recorded after the brutal raid of his Kalakuti compound and the consequent death of his mother, they comprise two of the most personal statements Kuti ever made.
"Coffin for Head of State" fights against the damaging effect of Christian and Muslim influence on African life. and takes to task the leaders perpetuate ths attitude. "Unknown Soldier" is one of the most ambitious recordings mainly because of the personal nature of the song. The "Unknown soldieur" was written on the report regarding throwing his mother out the window (which she died of soon after) which was a fantastic cover-up by the police, which Fela had no recourse.
