Weppa Wanno Sound vol. 2
Ijebor Trading Stores and Record
manufacturers Co. 1980

Net als de plaat van gisteren is ook deze niet vrij van kleine
beschadigingen. Dit soort Nigeriaanse oudheden is nauwelijks
in perfecte staat te vinden. We mogen al blij zijn ze überhaupt
tegen het lijf te lopen. Wat hebben we hier, het is het tweede
volume in de Weppa Wanno Sound serie. Er zijn er zeker zeven.
We blijven zoeken naar meer delen in de serie, wie weet wat
de beurs in Utrecht volgende maand zal brengen ..

Like yesterday’s album, its follower up of today is also not free
from little traces of damage. This type of Nigerian oldies is hardly
available in perfect condition. We may consider ourselves already
lucky finding them at all. What do we have here, it is the second
volume in the Weppa Wanno Sound series of which at least seven
exist. We’ll keep looking for more volumes, who knows what
the next record fair in Utrecht will bring us ..

Weppa Wanno Sound
Ijebor Trading Stores and Record
Manufacturers Co. 1979

In the afenmai section we find another record with
the Weppa Wanno Sound from Etsakor. It has a little
disturbance after about a minute and is quite scratchy
overall but I still didn’t want to withhold it from you.
Deep Nigerian highlife, no name of an artist on the cover.
We see two different images, can you tell us who we see ?

In de afenmai sectie vinden we vandaag nog zo’n plaat
met de Weppa Wanno Sound uit Etsakor. Na ongeveer
een minuut heeft hij enkele nare pops en is over het alge-
meen een beetje krakerig. Evengoed wilde ik hem je niet
onthouden. Diepe Nigeriaanse highlife. We vinden helaas
geen artiesten naam op de hoes, wel twee foto’s,
wie het weet mag het zeggen ..

Prince Nico Mbarga & Rocafil Jazz
Good Father, Rogers All Stars 1977/1981

“Ladies and gentlemen, Prince Nico Mbarga and Rocafil Jazz
present to you ‘Good Father'”, na het onnavolgbare succes van
zijn album ‘Sweet Mother’ uit 1976 bracht Prince Nico Mbarga
ode aan zijn complete familie. Platen als Family Movement,
Lucky marriage, Sweet Family en deze Good Father zijn duide-
lijk pogingen het succes van Sweet Mother te evenaren. Sweet
Mother verkocht wereldwijd meer dan 13.000.000 kopieën.
We hadden reeds zestien van zijn albums, het was hoog tijd
voor nummer zeventien. Down, deel en luister ..

“Ladies and gentlemen, Prince Nico Mbarga and Rocafil Jazz
present to you ‘Good Father'”, after the huge succes of his 1976
album ‘Sweet Mother’, Prince Nico Mbarga honoured his entire
family. Records like Family Movement, Lucky marriage, Sweet
Family and this Good Father are clearly made to try and equal
commercial succes of Sweet Mother. Sweet Mother sold over
13.000.000 copies worldwide. We had some sixteen of his
albums so far, high time for number seventeen,
get it, spread it and listen ..

It seems many albums are from 1981, some are and
some are re-issues in 1981 on Rogers All Stars.

The White Eagles of Sabagreia – Yebi Embelemi
EMI NEMI [LP] 0132

Until now, we saw the White eagles International, the Indomitable
White Eagles and the White Eagles of Sabagreia. I found that the
players on the two last albums were totally different. From this
one we don’t know any names. It seems however there are at
least two different groups from Nigeria using the name White
Eagles. If anyone can shine a light on this, would be greatly
appreciated. For now, let’s just listen to another album
of the White Eagles of Sabagreia ..

Tot nu toe zagen we platen van the White eagles International,
the Indomitable White Eagles en the White Eagles of Sabagreia. De
laatste twee hiervan toonden compleet vershillende line-ups. Van
deze weten we geen spelers maar het lijkt er op dat er minstens
twee verschillende bands zijn die de naam White Eagles gebrui-
ken. Als iemand dit zou kunnen ophelderen, heel graag. Tot die
tijd kunnen we slechts luisteren naar nog zo’n plaat met de
White Eagles of Sabagreia ..

Kabaka International Guitar Band led by Godwin
Kabaka Opara – Ezi Nwanne
Afrodisia 1989

One of Nigeria’s most succesful highlife bands was ‘The Oriental
Brothers’. It was founded by the brothers, Kabaka, Dan Satch and
Warrior Opara early seventies. Later the brothers all took their own
course and split up in Dr. Sir Warrior & his Oriental Brothers, Godwin
Kabaka Opara’s Oriental Brothers, Oriental Brothers International
Band, led by F. Dan Satch Opara and many other variations. Today
we have an album with Kabaka International Guitar Band led by
Godwin Kabaka Opara. You may find a bunch of related albums
linked below this article. When opening the Oriental Brothers
Face Book page I found the image of the green Oriental Brothers
record which they took from my copy here at the Global groove.
Funny, and it makes one think the brothers don’t own copies of
their own records. (see sleeve damage). One way or the other,
I still think this was one of the greatest Nigerian groups all time ..

Één van Nigeria’s meest succesvolle highlife bands was de Oriental
Brothers. De groep werd opgericht in de vroege jaren 70 door de broers
Kabaka, Dan Satch en Warrior Opara. Later kozen ze elk een eigen koers
en gingen verder als Dr. Sir Warrior & his Oriental Brothers, Godwin Ka-
baka Opara’s Oriental Brothers, Oriental Brothers International Band,
led by F. Dan Satch Opara en vele andere variaties. Vandaag hebben
we een album met Kabaka International Guitar Band led by Godwin
Kabaka Opara. Je vindt nog een pluk gerelateerde platen in de links
onder dit artikel. Toen ik de Oriental Brothers Face Book pagina opende
vond ik de afbeelding van hun groene album welke ze gekopieerd hebben
van mijn exemplaar hier op de Global groove. Grappig en het doet vermoe-
den dat de broers zelf niet alle platen bezitten die ze ooit hebben uitgebracht.
(zie de barstjes in de hoes) Hoe dan ook, ik ben van mening dat de oriental
Brothers nog altijd een van de beste Nigeriaanse Bands ooit zijn ..

Chief Commander Ebenezer Obey
The Miliki King – ‘My Vision’
Obey 1985

Some more requests for juju music from Michael, this is the first
of his wishes of which I just happen to have a few. Chief Commander
Ebenezer Obey made a load of records. We had a bunch already and
still many to follow. ‘My Vision’ is from 1985 and appears on the Obey
label. If you take a look at the backsleeve, just click on it, see how many
musicians helped making this record. 20 men bands are common in juju.
Not sure who the men on the pictures are, if you know ..

Ik kreeg nog wat verzoekjes voor meer juju van Michael, dit is de eerste
