Fela Kuti is already here under World Fusion, I'm a fan. 
We'll check the other suggestion and find where thy fit too. Thanks for the suggestions.

All good then. However, many other Afrobeat innovators are not on this site. Perhaps Tony Allen, Nomo, Antibalas, Femi Kuti, and Seun Kuti are worth a look?
