Nigeria had a unique music scene in the 1970s. Much of the
era's music was based on an intensive use of fuzz pedal and
keyboards. Influences largely came from Western psychedelic
blues and rock bands. In 1980 Effi Duke & The Love Family
presented their debut-album, 'Mr. Love'. It was released by
Homzy Records, a company that issued many Afro-funk records
between the mid '70s and the '80s. What's so unique about 'Mr.
Love' is Effi Duke's love for guitar based jazz, African
rhythms and funky bass. As a result his album is a great
funk/jazz/disco hybrid.
