Evi Edna Ogholi and FriendsThis Nigerian female artist recorded some music that was very popular in much of West Africa during the 80's and 90's. It still sounds great.
For many years there was very little on the internet for this artist, however lately more material has emerged. Some of her songs such as this one are now available on YouTube. I have seen her first name spelled "Edvy Edna" or "Evi Edna"; and her last name as "Ogholi" or "Ogoli".
When we were in Liberia in the early 90's she could be heard everywhere. At that time we bought a cassette at a Monrovia kiosk called "My Kind of Music". It sounds like it was recorded from an LP. It includes these tracks:
I have digitized these tracks into MP3s... the don't sound too bad considering they went from vinyl to cassette (in Africa) and then to digital 15 years later. firstname.lastname@example.org
