Editorial Reviews

While reggae music had its prominence in 70s Nigeria, it was highlife and Fela Kuti's Afrobeat that gave the country its own musical national identity. Originally Edire 'Pazy' Etinagbedia and his band The Black Hippies released their second LP, Wa Ho Ha on EMI Nigeria in 1978. Wa Ho Ha features Pazy and his Black Hippies engaged in call and response vocal anthems all backed by incredibly deep rock steady grooves and Afrobeat rhythms filled with funky horns and psychedelic guitar accents. Recorded in the legendary EMI Nigeria studios, Wa Ho Ha typifies the 70s Nigerian sound enthusiasts the world over have come to know and love, but puts an inimitable twist on it. This rare gem has been lovingly remastered and the original art work painstakingly digitally enhanced. Used copies seldom appear on the market, and when they do, it's usually in small private circles and you could put yourself through a semester or two of community college for what it costs to obtain a beatup copy. Available on CD and vinyl, Secret Stash is proud to partner with Comb & Razor to present the first ever reissue of this funky rarity. The CD version comes in a premium digipack. (Also available on LP+MP3).

Format: Audio CD
Some days I wake and think about other peoples' lives--often with a sense of amazement. After all, I am a fairly boring individual: a rural route mailman with a penchant for reading poetry. How, I wondered this morning, did anyone in Minneapolis MN come across this entirely strange Nigerian record? I visited Minneapolis once or twice--I don't remember a huge crowd of Nigerian expatriates grooving up and down the streets and wearing those ugly bright colored nylon coats all Minnesotans are issued at the age of 2 and a half and cling to like body armor until they fade into obscurity around the age of 72. And yet those happy folks at Secret Stash did so, really grooved on the record and then cheerfully launched it into orbit on this exciting Minneapolis wide release which thanks to the amazing internet you can buy today.

Which you should.

This is not Afrobeat music and sounds nothing like Fela or his fellow Afrobeat artists. The first two songs are reggae inspired, the rest disco inspired. The harmonies and singing are based on Nigerian modalities not Western modalities so they sound a little strange to the Western ear. Pazy lays down a lot of call and response with the Black Hippies. Also, at particularly intense moments, they all launch into collective animal cries. The rhythm section seems to be trying very very hard to play reggae and disco style and failing. Again and again a unique rhythmatic sound is created as native African rhythms creep into the sound. Don't misunderstand--the music is not quite reggae and not quite disco, but Pazy and the Hippies definitely know how to groove.
