Item ID: 452538

Spotted by EMI Nigeria's legendary producer Odion Iruoje, and nurtured by his protege Alex Tony Okoroji, Joe Moks (a.k.a. Josephine Mokwunyei) pioneered a wonky, hi-tech style of funk that would become the sound of '80s Nigeria. Her 1979 album 'Boys And Girls' is brash, bouncy and fun, decorated by scatty synth lines and propelled by the magic hand claps of Nigerian rhythm legends Steve Black, Goddy Igidigi and Ifi Okwechime. This is a fine reissue on vinyl.

Also available: BOYS AND GIRLS (CD).
