One of the Wamenyo stable of labels, which also included Bwana Otieko Weche, Log Dichiel, Piny to Angoni?, Weka Waka and X-Mas. The one constant across all these labels is that their records are undated.

Migori Super Stars are a Luo benga band who recorded for a multitude of labels. Orch Super Kaumba, meanwhile, were a Congolese band who also recorded for Editions AIT. Like many Congolese bands of the time, the group travelled widely and on a tour of Uganda recruited Sammy Kasule. He cites Super Kaumba and Orch Les Noirs as the first two bands he joined before travelling to Nairobi and making a reputation for himself under his own name. Now resident in Sweden, Kasule is still as of March 2011 an active musician playing bass and singing with Makonde.
