The Western world was in the throes of peace, love and flower power as Nigeria descended into Civil War in 1967. The rock scene that developed during the following three years of bloodshed and destruction would come to heal the country, help propagate the world-wide ideal of the Modern Nigerian, and propel Fela Kuti to stardom after the conflict ended in 1970. Wake Up You! Volume 2 tells the story of this time, pays homage to these now largely-forgotten musicians and their struggle, and brings to light the thrilling, original funk and psychedelic fury they created.
