Oke



Charlie Ahearn invites Okechukwu to represent Nigerian hip hop on this special segment. Oke's "Brother" floats over a jam by Nigerian colossus Fela Kuti, and he reflects on his country's profound music heritage. Oke (rhymes with Coke) provides us with a taste of the exploding Senegalese hip-hop scene and speaks about the importance of a Pan-African Movement. His "Pain" rhymes over chain gang chants from American slave tradition. He wraps up the show with an awesome a cappella free style in his unique baritone.
