In 1977 Jake Sollo returned to Nigeria to record his first solo album 'Coming Home'. His long-term band The Funkees had imploded in London and his big break with the Afro super band Osibisa was cut short when he went on strike with Kiki Gyan and promptly got sacked. 'Coming Home' (originally released on EMI in 1977) is a triumphant album that combined the raw power of The Funkees with the slick tricks he learned in London.

Also available: COMING HOME (CD).
