Ofege – You Say No (Nigeria, 1973, EMI Nigeria)

OFEGE was a 70s psychedelic Rock band from Nigeria, composed of teenage students of the St. Gregory’s College of Lagos.

Led by Melvin Ukachi & largely influenced by artists such as Carlos Santana, Jeff Beck or Jimmy Page, they recorded 4 albums before splitting up.

For today, I wanted to present you the track “You Say No“, taken from their first album “Try And Love“, full of fuzzy electric guitar solos and Afrobeat-esque drums.

This album was a great musical snap when I found it in Kumba (Western Cameroon) more than a decade ago, and is still one of my favorite African record – Enjoy !
