Upside Down Explanation

Africa needs to get their shit together
Africa is ass over head

“Upside Down” is in the dictionary
It has special meaning to Africa

Fela the world-traveling teacher,
He sees that in countries overseas- that everything is organized
But in Africa…Everything is disorganized
There is not even knowledge of African culture,
Few houses, few villages, crappy city houses, people use colonial names…
