Love it or hate it, African Boogie music is largely underrated... I believe few blogs around have accorded and shown interest & with most record labels exclusively focusing on Fela's contemporeans & heritage it seems there is no place for those cheesy pieces of west african pop-funk songs.
Dizzy K. - Fummi Love
Dizzy K. (Fofola) who is generally considered as an iconic african Boogie figure cut 6 records, all of them engineered by the mighty Tony Okoroji (music producer but also "auteur" for the afro pop gem "Mama & Papa") whome I believed had a huge influence on Dizzy's electrofunk compositions due to surprising similarities between both artists.
Today Mr. Fofola (now a Londoneer resident), is making a living as a succesfull gospel interpret...
> For some more "sweet Dizzy K. music", have a visit at "With Comb & Razor" who uploaded a couple more songs.
Al Diamond - Tashi Mu Taka (Hausa)
> Sorry guys but I wasn't able to find serious informations, any comments regarding Al Diamond would be greatly appreciated.
William Onyeabor - Let's Fall In Love
As taken from the B side of african synthi wizard W.O.'s LP: "Good Name". A two track killer Lp (his biggest record on demand) which despite of not being considered by specialists as real Boogie musics is full of bizarre & progressive synth driven funk songs just like his latter efforts.
> The long promised Onyeabor's anthology post should come soon.
Emma Dorgu - I Missed My Favourite Tune
As far as I know and considering the record list on discogs "Girl" is Emma Dorgu's lattest record. Pretty different from his earlier LPs & much less sophisticated african disco-funk style songs, by far my favourite record. There is also an instrumental dub mix for the song on the B side.
> An E.D.'s song can be found on the recently released compilation "Lagos Disco Inferno" as compiled by Frank from Voodoo Funk.
