There’s a writing credit on the first two of these Kikuyu singles for Mukaramani, which makes it safe to assume the two bands are related. The British Library’s National Sound Archive says AGE 08 was produced by Joseph Kamaru, leader of the City Sound Band, music store owner and a prime mover and shaker in Kikuyu music.

Sofiane of Groovy Record in Paris provided details of Age 5, 09 and 98 in March 2011.
