Odion Iruoje was Nigeria’s number one producer of the 1970s and early ‘80s. He is credited with signing Fela Kuti to EMI Nigeria and he produced Fela’s revolutionary early material between 1970-73. He also signed and produced most of the great body of Nigerian material on the EMI label including BLO, Mono-Mono, Tunji Oyelana, Ofege, Geraldo Pino, Sonny Okosuns and many many more. Part disco, part Nigerian rap, Afro-funk & Juju it’s a unique and at times eccentric blend of Nigerian music that certainly deserves another look after all these years.
