Kiki Gyan's star didn't burn long, but it burned bright. Drafted into the Afro funk super group Osibisa at age 15, he was millionaire by 18 and regarded as one of the best keyboardists in the world by 21. In 1983 he dived head first into the New York party scene. He took a lot of drugs, spent a lot of time in clubs and got together a team of crack local musicians to record 'Feelin' Alright', his third and final solo album. All the Kiki Gyan trademark elements are present and correct. The album is unique a blend of highlife music with electronic funk and disco. Kiki Gyan would never hit such heights again. His addictions eventually took hold and he died aged 47, destitute and alone. 'Feelin' Alright' remains one of the brightest stars in his extraordinary constellation.

Also available: FEELIN' ALRIGHT (CD).
