Ferdinand Dan Satch Emeka Opara would eventually go on to form The Oriental Brothers band with his brothers Godwin Kabaka Opara, Kabaka Opara and Christogonous Ezebuiro “Warrior” Obinna along with Nathaniel “Mangala” Ejiogu, Hybrilious Dkwilla’ Alaraibe, and Prince Ichita.
The only information I was able to find about this band, was a mention of record by “Dan Satch & the Professional Atomic ‘8’ Band” on a webpage with a discography for the The Oriental Brothers band. That record was released in 1969, while the first Oriental Brothers record did not come out until 1974.
Since this original posting, I have been informed about the album “Ikoro’s ’70 Special”. You can find the entire album, plus an extensive biography here.
Catalog number HNS 1091 on HMV of Nigeria, no release date given.
Update 02.16.2010 – I’ve been meaning to update this post for forever, since I have been told that just about all of the information above is incorrect. Fortunately, the folks over at Waxidermy have posted this single with the correct information. You can find it here.
