Image: 1581282 Destruction by the Nkengas originally hit streets in 1973, overflowing with heavy Afro-beat, Afro-rock, and gritty highlife. It came about during Osita Osadebe and His Nigeria Sound Makers's UK tour. Financial hardship led members of the Nigeria Sound Makers to break off and form another group while in London, the Nkengas.

The Nkengas were introduced to Jamaican born Sonny Roberts, well known in London for his Orbitone record store and . After the recording sessions, the band returned to Nigeria and became known as the Ikenga Super Stars of Africa, finding much success in West Africa. Despite their later popularity, the heights of funky rawness in this early effort were seldom duplicated.

Contains detailed liner note inserts with never before seen photos. As always, the LP version includes a free digitalvdownload of the entire album. Available from 17.05.2013
