William Onyeabor (1946-2017)

I discovered William Onyeabor years ago after hearing his song, “Fantastic Man” on a random African comp I downloaded from some website I’ve long-forgotten about.

At the time I remember thinking: who is this man and how did he make this strange, funky, happy music? I’ve been hooked ever since. Rest in Peace Mr. Onyeabor.
