WILLIAM ONYEABOR

Atomic Bomb

Light In The Attic

$49.95

William Onyeabor is a mysterious man with a beloved back catalog. Despite growing a deeply loyal cult following over the decades, the Nigerian electro-funk/Afro-beat innovator has only a mere paragraphs worth of a Wikipedia entry to his name. But as the story goes, after releasing a winning string of incredible dance records from 1978 to 1985, Onyeabor became a Born Again and disavowed all secular music. There are also rumors about a stint studying cinematography in the Soviet Union, a law degree obtained in England, and contract work for the Nigerian government so who knows what actually happened. The point is, no one has been successful at legally licensing the mans music … until now, of course.
