World Psychedelic Classics 5: Who Is William Onyeabor? (Luaka Bop, 2013)

Here’s a funky cut courtesy of Continental Drift DJ Claire:

Here’s a classic from Nigeria’s king of funk, William Onyeabor. After releasing 8 albums in the late 70s & early 80s, he apparently ended his career abruptly in favor of becoming a born-again Christian. Little is known of his whereabouts now, but thankfully we have this recently reissued compilation to celebrate Onyeabor’s work.
