Mr Bongo to reissue “one of the best” Afrobeat albums of the great Nigerian, Peter King – ‘Oma Lewa’

Mr Bongo pick a supreme album from the catalogue of Peter King – a heavyweight of Afrobeat and the 1970s Nigerian music scene – with an official reissue of Omo Lewa.

The label says about the 1976 LP: “[This is] super-funky business from Nigerian-born multi-instrumentalist, Peter King; [and] fuses funk, jazz and highlife vibrations. Omo Lewa follows his Miliki Sound album, also available on Mr Bongo. Recorded in London, originally released in 1976 by Orbitone, this is one of his finest records.”
