Seun Kuti performs "Zombie"

6:30

As a tribute to his father, Seun Kuti opens his concert with one of Fela's signature songs, "Zombie," a scathing indictment of the Nigerian army for blindly following repressive orders. This is Afrobeat at its most provocative written by a man who repeatedly challenged the military regime and paid the price in countless beatings and arrests.
