African System Orchestra – Fine Country,Rogers All Stars 1980

African System Orchstra, front

The GG has quite a few friends in the Barranquilla area of Northern
Colombia, the’re crazy for Nigerian highlife in that outpack, understandable.
A request was received for this particular lp and it just so happened
it was waiting upfront of my Nigerian record pile. I hope you can
use it and create some phat pico champeta sound with this.
Get to it. In case you forgot,


1 Fine country
2 Monique a duala
3 Nobody knows tomorrow
4 Agnes my love

  1. ..sorry but I made a mistake, inside the file you’ll find that I forgot the letter ‘n’ in African. You may have to chage it yourself..

  2. Thanks Moos for this great album.
    Track 2 “Monique a Duala” is French and Lingala.
    Do you know the name of the members of African System Orchestra?
    I can hear on their English that more than one is from Congo/Zaire. Even the guitar got the Congo rythme.


  3. this band is from Cameroon, John Blade commented some years ago.

    “Actually, groups like this, Super Negro Bantous, etc. are more Camerounian than Igbo, as was Nico Mbarga’s band for a while. These musicians all came to Nigeria when the oil money was flowing, and were deported when the going got rough in the mid-’80s.” Jhon Blade

  4. Liking this – thanks for the share Moos. Like that saying some fine day – very true. Even a gloomy cloudy lifts eventually to reveal a beautiful sun.

  5. moos well thanks if you could upload the super negro bantous album called god will pay you … I’d appreciate it moos …

  6. Don’t be upset Moos. There is No god. I think some people have a placebo-positive efect, at best. 99 percent of religion is vomit.

    Nevertheless, you have posted quite a lot of religious music. I could not be bothered, the music was always greater than understanding of the language. Super Negro Bantous have made a lot of great albums (you posted them, so I know).

    Thank you very much Moos.

  8. moos I really like the album Prince Nico Mbarga – good father if you could upload it .. I would greatly appreciate you friend …

  9. Thanks for the African System Orchestra Moos! Their music is an combination of Soukous and Nigerian Highlife which was primary influenced from Prince Nico, etc. Also do you have more from the Zaire Promotion series its quite rare and the ones I found are Vol.1 and 3

  10. On April 2 Ebenezer Obey celebrated his 70th birthday. Can you upload one of his albums to celebrate the man


  11. dear Visitor, if you think; why is nothing happening here, I am re-decorating and building a new recordwall so all equipment is waiting for a new setting. Hang in there, we’ll be back later this month..

  12. Phew…..I was beginning to worry. Thanks for the reassuring update!
    Enjoy your redecorating! As for me, now the loooooong winter is almost over, I’m starting to think about gardening.
