Catalog no.: PMGLP0000056

Item ID: 440716

In 1979, Emma Dorgu decided it was time to act. He'd torn up the Lagos live scene with The Thermometers and conquered the airwaves with the single 'World People'. But there were injustices afoot, not just in Nigeria, but in South Africa and Zimbabwe and across the continent as well, and he felt that something needed to be done. 'Roverman' was his politicized call to action. Blackman Akeeb Kareem lent him the instruments and let him rehearse in his sitting room. 'Roverman' is an album that challenges your mind while it speaks to your feet. Protest music has never sounded so funky.

Also available: ROVERMAN (CD).
