Apala goes Techno? 70’s hit single ‘Oroki Social Club’ gets a hot remix

by Taiwo Damilola

To answer the question quickly – Yes it’s true! What eventually turned out to be known as ‘Oroki Social Club, Osogbo’, started out as a political pressure group and metamorphosed into one of the most formidable social groups in the ancient Western
 Region of Nigeria. The movement was a political youth wing in support of the great Chief Obafemi Awolowo, and the eponymous single ‘Oroki Social Club, Ilu‐Osogbo’, sold over five million copies when it 
was released in the 70’s.

Decades later, Triple O productions, Bayoz Music, DJ Lanre
 at Factory78 
and 51
 Records come together to remake this tune, blending music from Nigeria’s Golden Past, with the brilliance of the present and future. It’s a foot‐stomping, hip‐jarring  remix guaranteed to get listeners dancing before the baseline thumps. Now, that’s music!
