The title track, 'Gentleman', has often been hailed as Fela's masterpiece. The politically scathing song opposes Westernization and those who imitate Western ways. Fela had many Ghanaian friends (and Ghanaian wives and Ghanaian girlfriends) and 'Fefe Naa Efe' is sung as a tribute to Ghana. 'Igbe' again shows Fela breaking cultural taboos by singing literally and figuratively about 'sh*t'. He sings the word in a several Nigerian languages so there is no misunderstanding.
