More Info:

Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. Rare Nigerian Afrobeat-Afropop album from 1985. Melvin Ukachi needs little introduction, the Lagos (Nigeria) based vocalist and bandleader is a living legend. Melvin is known for his fantastic solo albums, his vocals for the afrobeat star-groups M.F.B. and Ozzobia... but his biggest legacy is without a doubt him being the singer and bandleader of Ofege. On (I Am OK, the listener is treated to Ofege's trademark sound... but we're also shown a perfect glimpse of the late 70's afrobeat works combining soul, jazzy rhythms, William Onyeabor style laid back electro funk synths & fluid boogie-danceability. The female backing vocals and handclaps by Princess Bunmi Olajubu (Femi Kuti) also deserve a special mention because they add so much depth and grooves to this amazing record.
