roforofo fight
 n.— «In Roforofo Fight (1972), Fela Anikulapo-Kuti sings about a very angry friend who, against all the remonstrations of his colleagues, engages in a nasty brawl in a pool of mud with an unspecified assailant. Consequently, the mud (roforofo) claims both assailant and defender as the two brawlers come to “look like twins,” their spearate identities indistinguishable in their grotesque, muddied appearance.» —by Trevor Schoonmaker Fela: From West Africa to West Broadway July 4, 2003.
