Na Poi was originally issued in 1972 and re-released in 1976. Another version was included on 1976's Yellow Fever. The title track was hugely controversial and was banned by the Nigerian Broadcasting Company for its taboo lyrics. In Yoruba, the expression literally means "things will collide," and in the lyric Fela Kuti describes male and female relations in graphic detail. The record finishes with "You No Go Die...Unless," a hard-hitting funk tune that displays Fela's bravado as he instructs people not to fear death. Again Fela is playing provocateur to the ruling regime, essentially announcing his fearlessness in the face of their brutality. Colored vinyl with download card.
