Ofege – “Nobody Fails” (1974)
Another gift from Exiled Records, and another taste of spinning Nigerian afro-rock greatness. With a shuffling rhythm that shifts from feeling triple-time to half-time, sweetly crooning guitar, and a vocal hook that doesn’t stop, “Nobody Fails” (like the whole album) is addictive. Apparently Ofege were a bunch of teenagers, aided on this record by studio session men, but the sound is anything but immature.
