The first of our list from the continent of Africa may not have had as big an impact on the world of Rock and Roll, but to those who view music as a global community, Fela Kuti’s contributions to the world of music was a huge one. His pioneering of the Afro Beat musical style was large; though not as large as the persona he seemed to create. As important to African music as Bob Marley was to Jamaica, Fela Kuti is the biggest wild card of a list of wild cards to make the Hall.
