Oluwa Lohanmi Nichai

Toba Walemi

I don’t have too much to say about this one. Luckily, the record more than speaks for itself.

Ferry Djimmy was, as far as I know, from Benin – or maybe Côte d’Ivoire. He released at least two singles on EMI / Pathé, as well as a single and an LP on his own Revolution Records – which I do know was based in Cotonou. Everything I’ve heard by him has been scorching. Surprised his stuff hasn’t been reissued, or even popped up on a compilation yet…

If you have any further information about Ferry Djimmy or his backing band the Dji-kins, please contact me or leave a comment.

Catalog number 2 C 006 – 15173 W on EMI / Pathé, pressed in France. No release date listed.



I was surprised, pleasantly, to recognize Oluwa Lohanmi Nichai. One of the mystery tunes from an Analog Africa mix (sans playlist) put out a while back. Wonder if that means they are working on a re-issue.

Hot stuff! Has a bit of Poly Rythmo churn to it. Thanks for something I would have never known existed!
