The Funkees - Now I'm a man [1976]




This band was one of the best rock groups to come out of Nigeria in the 70s, during that country’s post-Civil War musical explosion.
They formed in the eastern university and oil town of Warri, in Delta State, and the members were veterans of the Biafran Army; their connections to people who traveled abroad often gave them access to a lot of British and American records that competing bands couldn’t hear.
After a series of singles, the band upped stakes and moved to London, where they quickly established a fierce reputation on the live circuit  and recorded two LPs. 
before they disbanded in 1977.
This is their second album,a fantastic combination of funk and rock mixed with african elements.

                                            Super!


                                                                                 Enjoy!
