The Holy Grail of Afro soul. Ultra-rare second album recorded in 1978 in Nigeria by six band members from Porto Novo, a city in the eastern part of Benin. Info about the band remained really hard to find. Sadly, all the musicians died, as did the lead singer in a tragic car accident. After their first album in 1976, Ogassa ("Oga" means master in Nigerian dialect) was touring a lot in West Africa, thanks to radio hits such as "Segbele-Gbele" and "Ajimevi." They were also very close to the famous Orchestre Poly-Rythmo De Cotonou, with whom they worked once. Most of these songs were only pressed once on vinyl by the famous Albarika label in Cotonou and have remained unreleased since. Presented in a heavy jacket on 180 gram vinyl. Limited to 700 copies only.
