Aleke Kanonu & O.C. Tolbert Happiness / Nwanne, Nwanne, Nwanne

PMG
  • 1. Happiness
  • 2. Nwanne, Nwanne, Nwanne

Bringing together the undisputed talents of Nigerian percussionist Aleke Kanonu and soul legend from Alabama,O.C. Tolbert, this 12" created quite the buzz when it was released in New York in 1982. 'Happiness' is an uptown style gospel ballad where Tolbert's gravelly, soulful voice channels years of hurt and pain. 'Nwanne, Nwanne, Nwanne' is an Afro-beat disco monster that rattles along on the back of Kanonu's awesome percussion skills.
