More Info
William Onyeabor was a Nigerian funk musician. His music was widely heard in Nigeria in the late 1970s and early 1980s, but he remained an enigmatic figure, private and reclusive. According to the Luaka Bop record label, Onyeabor "self-released eight albums between 1977 and 1985 and then became a born-again Christian, refusing to ever speak about himself or his music again." Onyeabor sadly passed away in 2017 aged 70. Admirers of Onyeabor's work include David Byrne, Damon Albarn, Dan Snaith, Four Tet and Tune-Yards.
