Akwassa was among Nigeria's best '70s Afro-beat bands. Having released 'La'ila' in 1975, the group was among the early
Nigerian funk bands to get an album out. Akwassa was closely
related to the Heads Funk Band, since most members played in
both acts. Akwassa originally was a duo made up of Felix Day
(guitar and vocals) and Kevin Coburn (organ, synthesizer and
vocals). Felix Day is actually Feladey, also known as the
guitarist in Aktion (another top notch Nigerian band).
