Melvin Ukachi formed Ofege in the early 1970's. Due to their vibrant combo of sweet harmonies, hooks and fuzz, Ofege would become one of the most famous Nigerian groups of all time. Melvin recorded four albums with Ofege, and when the Ofege story came to an end, Melvin recorded two solo albums: 'Evolution-Bring Back The Ofege Beat' (1981) and 'I Am Ok' (1985). Both of his solo recordings have become much sought-after items. 'Evolution-Bring Back The Ofege Beat' was released on EMI Nigeria in 1981 and is an Afro-psych-funk classic which is tight, funky and completed by Melvin's soulful vocals. Tidal Waves Music presents the first-ever reissue, available as a limited 180 gram edition complete with original artwork.
