Mini Doc on the great William Onyeabor

Check out this incredible, must-see 30 minute doc on the very mysterious and extremely unique William Onyeabor. Luaka Bop records recently reissued a compilation of his tunes and, in this documentary, tells the tale about how they attempted to learn about the man. The story is as bizarre as the music. Mandatory viewing for any fan of African music. It even features some INSANE footage of the original music video for one of his weirdest and best tunes, “When the Going is Good and Smooth” (which is featured on Meistro’s “Jigawa Groove” mix — a comp of gems he scored in Nigeria in 2009).  Check it out!
