An Audio Productions of Nairobi label like APL and Audio Productions, though initially specialising in Lingala singles. BABU 013, which surfaced on Ebay in September 2010, appears to be a departure from the pattern.


Can’t say much about Orch Les Baboka, except they appear to have been led by Bela Belos as he gets songwriting credit on all three of their singles here.


Bana Ngeng’e, led by Fataki Lokassa, were one of the first Congolese bands to make an impact on the Kenyan scene. Other singles by the band can be found on Bana Moja and Universal Sounds.


Ayoma Pts 1 & 2, BANU 005, shares the same title as a 1976 song by Orch Special Liwanza on Editions Ba-Ba, EB 9, and may well be the same song.
