Kuti and Allen had played together as sidemen in the Lagos circuit. Fela complimented Allen’s unique sound: Guitar legend Oghene Kologbo was born in Warri, Nigeria in 1957. When Kologbo was a teenager, he performed with the revolutionary Afrobeat master Fela Kuti. Kologbo went on to record more than 50 sides with Africa 70. He played the hypnotic tenor guitar lines, but often recorded bass and rhythm guitar too. Kologbo was Fela’s personal assistant and ‘tape recorder’. That is, it was his job to remember the melodies Fela would sing to him late at night, then teach them to the band at rehearsal the next day. In 1978, after a show at the Berlin Jazz Festival, Kologbo left the band (along with Tony Allen and a few others) and stayed in Berlin. Joseph “JoJo” Kuo is a much-sought after musician and producer who is known globally for his extraordinary drumming talent. Disney Animal Kingdom theme park,was the resident African band and special events leader,1999. Kuo contributed his performing and producing talents globally with such artists as Manu Dibango, Fela, Peter Gabriel, Papa Wemba, Mory Kante, Harry Belafonte and Richard Bona
