Alhaji Waziri oshomah – Ota Pea Pea
Polygram / Waziri 1978


It is not highlife as I stated before, it is no juju, no afrobeat,
this Nigerian artist produces a type of music they call Afemai
Sound. There are juju elements as well as highlife but same time
it is different. At Superfly Records you will find a lot of info
on the subject. Listen to- and enjoy Ota Pea Pea..

Het is geen highlife zoals ik eerder beweerde, geen juju en geen
afrobeat. Deze Nigeriaanse artiest maakt muziek die men Afemai
Sound noemt. Het bevat wel degelijk elementen van highlife en ook
juju maar is toch anders. Op Superfly Records vindt je een hoop informatie.
Luister naar- en geniet van Ota Pea Pea..

tracks ;

01 – Ota pea pea
02 – Late ojeiku aisuku
03 – Ozemede alhaji abu ali
04 – Gold and silver alhaji m.s. umoru

    Moos, this is wonderful. A total surprise, and totally different to any other Nigerian music from this time that I have ever heard. It has me looking at Superfly for more of his stuff, or more of a similar genre.

    Hi Moos,

    Any chance you can do one of your seven-days of… showcasing Afemai Sound?

    This was the first album i heard of Sir Waziri Oshoma. It left such a big impression on me and continues to be one of my favorite of his albums. Thanks for posting.
