Released around in 1985 by the Nigerian Afro band Ozzobia, who are also well known for their 1986 album "Man No Good". The catchy yet rhythmic Afro sound of the 1986 album remains unchanged in this album, and is combined with electronic sounds and wired rhythm to create a total of six tunes. Among them, the funky afro dancer "Ije Eluwa" with sharp vocals and electronic sounds, the mid tune "Ofu Obi (Onye Achuna Uwa Nike)" with a cosmic atmosphere, and simply good afro track "Osula" that seems to go well with dance music, are recommended. Disc is in good condition.

86年の改作”Man No Good”でも知られるナイジェリアのアフロバンドOzzobiaによるおそらく85年前後リリース作品。その86年作でも聞かせるキャッチーながらリズミカルなアフロサウンドはこの作品でも変わらず、そこに電子音や変拍子を組み合わせた全6曲の構成。中でもキレのあるヴォーカルに電子音も効いたファンキー・アフロ・ダンサー”Ije Eluwa”、コズミック雰囲気のミッド・チューン”Ofu Obi (Onye Achuna Uwa Nike)”、ダンスミュージックとも相性がよさそうな良トラック”Osula Nwa Eje Ubi Eje Oba”がオススメ。盤も良好な部類です。
