This product is currently sold out.

Fela’s album cover artist Lemi Ghariokwu picked out this back cover of "Johnny Just Drop (J.J.D)" for the first printing of these limited edition 2 foot x 2 foot posters; only 100 in existence, they are printed on fade-resistant gloss paper and come with a download code for the "Johnny Just Drop (J.J.D)" album.

This back cover was Lemi’s original design for the "J.J.D" album cover. However, Fela, not wanting to focus his criticism of "J.J.D"’s – western educated elites coming back from abroad – on the youth of the country, asked for a re-drawing of the cover to depict an older character who was rejecting traditional African ways and imitating the colonial masters.
