'Nobody Knows' is arguably Nigeria's best -and perhaps only-
disco-country album. Country music has always been influential
in Nigeria and Ogosi managed to channel Jim Reeves via the
bright lights of Lagos' burgeoning disco scene to produce an
album of sparkling mournfulness. 'Nobody Knows' was originally
released by Phonodisk in 1981.

Also available: NOBODY KNOWS (LP).
