William Onyeabor – Something You’ll Never Forget (80s Version) (Nigeria, 1982, Wilfilms Records)

For today, I wanted to share with you “Something You’ll Never Forget“, an outstanding catchy Lo-Fi Electronic Afro Funk Synth track from the legendary mysterious Nigerian musician & producer William Onyeabor recorded in 1982 on his own Wilfilms record label, that is rumored to be the soundtrack of a movie he also produced.

This LP is actually a re recorded version of “Crashes In Love“, an earlier album released in 1977 that contains the same tracks (original had one more), but played in a less electronic way than that one presented here, which is my favorite of both – Hope you’ll like it, enjoy !
