no where close, but probably one of the most respected. P-Square Dbanj and Tuface can all sponsor his life. P-Square actually had the highest record sales in 2007 world wide.
but Femi is the shit, his more streamline take on afro beat is nice and easy to listen to. One of Fela's set backs was his shit was too raw. 32 minute sax solos and shit. He just did whatever the hell he felt like but Femi has more structure and is generally the shit.
