'How Do You Feel' (released in 1978 on Polydor Nigeria) is Ofege's fourth (and final) album. On this amazing record, the listener is treated to the trademark Ofege sound, but you can also hear the band absorbing some of the other things that were happening at the time (like disco and reggae). By 1978, North American bands like Funkadelic and the Ohio Players that had formerly purveyed raggedly funky rock were shifting their output exclusively towards slicker, more dancefloor-oriented material. These shifts also applied to bands on the European and African continent, and Ofege was no exception. The difference in sound from their earlier recordings sounds organic and can be attributed to the band's burgeoning maturity and said changes in their musical environment. Next to the regular band-members, this album has some serious 'all-star' guest musicians featured on it as well: Kofi Ayivor (Eddy Grant) on congas, Robert Bailey (Osibisa) on keyboards and of course the legendary Jake Sollo (The Funkees) whose trademark solo-guitar work is all over this Ofege record. 'How Do You Feel' is a an Afrobeat club-classic with some serious funky and spacey disco (of the good kind) mixed through its tracks, a faithful snapshot of what was actually happening in the African soul music scene at that specific period in time. Limited vinyl edition of 500 copies, complete with the original artwork and exclusive liner notes/pictures provided by Ofege's founding member Melvin Ukachi who also supervised this reissue.
