YABIS NIGHT
During the 1970's in Lagos, Nigeria, the Afrobeat music of Fela Kuti ruled the streets and airwaves. Every Friday night at his African Shrine was "Yabis Night" where he would joke about himself, band members, the audience, elected officials, etc. as a way to confront serious issues in society. (In Pidgin English the word "yabis" means to make fun of something or someone) With that concept in mind we aim to address some of the issues that we face in our communities by defining and expressing ourselves.
