BENS INTERNATIONAL

EBI-7005 is a praise song for President Daniel Arap Moi. As Moi came to power in 1978, this would indicate the label started up in that year or later. Orch Lwalaba, however, don’t feature anywhere else in this discography.


KDS Dahos appear to be either King Daho Success, who also recorded for Polydor, or an offshoot from it, while Kabasseleh-Kidi is presumably HO Kabaselleh’s Lunna Kidi.


Details of EBI-7001, 7005, 7007 and 7008 come from the Voice of America sound archives. EBI-7003 and 7006 turned up on the CD&LP.com website in March 2015.
