roforofo fight
 n.— «The war gongs are already primed, trenches are being dug, and the various troops are moving into positions. Nothing, it seems can stop this fight that promises to be what the late Afro beat musician, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, described as roforofo fight. Happily, however, this time, gunrunners and all those who specialize in fanning the embers of war for their own, selfish interest, will not be needed. » —“13% Derivation War Coming” by Mideno Bayagbon Vanguard Daily (Lagos, Nigeria) June 21, 2000.
