johnnyB: Obama is not black. He is as much black as he is white.

Are there any good songs about Idi Amin?

Prince Buster & The Revolutionaries - Idi Amin 7" - titled after him, rather than a song about him.

@Jack Johnson - I couldn't listen to links when I replied, so on the same case there :)

@Rico - check the recent thread about Mandela songs

The mandela thread is great

Here are a few wich comes to my mind.
Dean Fraser - Idi Amin
halfpint – man of sorrow
Color Red - Christ is Black
Tarrus Riley Shaka Zulu Pickney
Merger - Biko
Dennis alcapone. Muhamad ali
Don covay – rumble in the jungle

There is a scientis Lp with dubs called like some Leaders
http://www.reggaefever.ch/articleDetail ... Id=CD-5139

Bt same like the Idi amin tunes, they are only dubs/riddims.

an obvious one - whole LP full of names...(strictly instrumental though)

http://www.roots-archives.com/release/1891

i've always wondered why Toussaint L'Ouverture rarely get mentioned in any reggae songs. He was (imo) the most important in the history of the new world/liberation of the black descendants.
