'Nobody Knows' is arguably Nigeria's best -and perhaps only- disco-country album. Country music has always been influential in Nigeria and Ogosi managed to channel Jim Reeves via the bright lights of Lagos' burgeoning disco scene to produce an album of sparkling mournfulness. 'Nobody Knows' was originally released by Phonodisk in 1981.

Also available: NOBODY KNOWS (CD).
