Oghene Kologbo, born in Warri (Nigeria) has been an integral member of the legendary Fela Kuti's Africa '70's for the whole life of the band.
This made his tight tenor guitar playing be a fundamental presence in all the masterpiece records that defined the sound of Afrobeat and brought him to play with people of the likes of James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Lester Bowie and Paul McCartney, to name a few.
Since he based his owwn life in Berlin in 1978, Kologbo continued to collaborate with Fela in Egypt '80 and toured with King Sunny Ade, Tony Allen and Brenda Fosse, among many others.
He also founded a number of successful bands such as Roots Anabo, and projects with Adè Bantu and Xavier Naidoo.

Recorded in Berlin in 2007, this record marks Kologbo's return to original, uncompromised Afrobeat.
Original in it's concept, with rockin' guitar solos and all tunes under 7 minutes, the vinyl features the best songs of the full-length CD released on Lion's Ark in September 2007 with a radically original artwork.
Strictly in heavy (180gr.) pressing.
