A label for Lingala bands recorded and released by AP Chandarana of Kericho in the 1970s. Nova Success also recorded for Uhuru Stars so must have been based in Tanzania at some point.

Thanks to Pieter Remes for the label scan, which has left me thinking whether there was a whole Clint Eastwood/Sergio Leone/Man With No Name/Spaghetti Western line of thought behind the label’s name.
