Emperor Teddy Obinna—Uwa Wu Paw-Paw

Onye-Ugwu

Side B
Gwupiti Na Azu
Uwa Wu Paw-Paw

A great late period tape by the brother of Ultimate Dr. Sir Warrior, who was captain of Nigeria's Oriental Bros. International Band. Teddy Obinna's brother was one of the more prolific highlife figures of yesteryear with a discography to prove it. Teddy, on the hand, I know very little about. Tape is still good.
