Kologbo & Afrobeat Academy - Wearplay EP#25 - Change The System (T-shirt/Digital single bundle, Paris DJs/Le T-shirt Français, 2018)

Paris DJs Wearplay EP 025 Change The System

Every 6th of the month at Paris DJs is KOLOGBO DAY and this one is a special one — those in the know will understand — and this is why we're fulfilling Kologbo's request to reissue his 'Change The System' tune. It was released 10 years ago on his first album, 'Remember Fela Anikulapo Kuti', with German band Afrobeat Academy. Kologbo had heard it played in a mix from Paris DJs' podcast, and wanted everyone to be able to hear this Grant Phabao "remastered" version. The song is a tight & funky afrobeat piece with killer lyrics. "It's still time to change the system a few years after, because the system is a fraud", says Kologbo.

Chaque 6 du mois chez Paris DJs c'est le KOLOGBO DAY, celui-ci est spécial - certains comprendront - c'est pourquoi nous honorons la requête de Kologbo, qui souhaitait publier une réédition de son morceau 'Change The System' sorti à l'origine sur son premier album, 'Remember Fela Anikulapo Kuti', avec le groupe allemand Afrobeat Academy. Kologbo l'avait entendu joué dans un mix du podcast Paris DJs, et voulait que tout le monde puisse entendre cette version "remasterisée" par Grant Phabao. La chanson est un morceau afrobeat super en place et bien funky, avec des paroles fantastiques. "Il est encore temps de changer le système quelques années après (cette chanson), car le système est une supercherie", dit Kologbo.

We nearly missed KOLOGBO DAY. Every 6th of the month is Kologbo day at Paris DJs, which means we're celebrating our friend Oghene Kologbo, who was Fela Kuti's tenor guitarist in Afrika 70, who played with nearly everyone from the worldwide afrobeat scene ever since it emerged in the late 1990s...
