Before the Azonto, Skelewu and the more recent Shoki, there was the Konko Below dance!
Afrobeats lovers (and those who grooved to this tune at Owambe parties) will remember this throwback track by the masked man himself, Lagbaja and his back-up singer Ego Ogbaro titled “Konko Below“.
This simple time to dance tune became a hit in year 2001 when it was released on the “We Before Me” album. Laced with Lagbaja’s signature traditional Yoruba drums and with lyrics sung in Yoruba, one doesn’t need to understand the lyrics before you groove to this dance number.
Its my birthday tomorrow and I’m in full turn-up mode with my shoulders back, hips down, butt stuck out and getting down under! You may do the same.
