J.J.D is a live album by Nigerian musician Fela Kuti, originally released in 1977 via Barclay Records.

J.J.D (Johnny Just Drop) is talking about Africans who travel abroad only to return home with new values and mannerisms. Since the advent of colonialism in Africa, the education system left Black people with an inferior perception of their culture. Those who are Western educated, are in the habit of repeating untruths about African traditions and heritage, because the discipline to think and act big has not yet become a part of Africa’s present day academic and intellectual traditions.

In J.J.D, Fela is reminding Africans travelling abroad in search of greener pastures to be proud of their original cultural values, those inherent values the J.J.D ‘educated’ elite have been brainwashed to despise.

This limited LP record is on black vinyl with a printed insert, reissued in February 2020 via Knitting Factory Records.
