Catalog no.: PMGLP0000058

Item ID: 440718

A bona-fide Nigerian prince and probably the only musician to have ever played with Fela Kuti, Miles Davis and Bob Marley, Eji Oyewole combined African Highlife with western jazz to create a hybrid so that was as smooth as it was funky. His first album, 'Charity Begins At Home' was an angry tirade against corruption in Nigeria. 'Me & You' is his relationship album, a brighter and happier set of songs that sees Eji all loved up, presumably with the mysterious Cameleon featured on the cover. Originally released on Top Records (Nigeria) in 1985.

Also available: ME & YOU (CD).
