about

Wokunyeya music video: bit.ly/2na6KfD
Wokunyeya « Cause toujours, tu m’intéresse ! », Gabelo’s first ever EP, was released in 1975. In this Afro Funk track, Gabelo sings in his native language (Mina) and speaks of those who don’t know that a good deed is never wasted. The first project of a plentiful career, Wokunyeya stayed at the top of the charts in Lomé. The second track on the record is Agouto.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Gabelo's musical career, the Wokunyeya and Kossiwa EP's have been re-mastered by Grammy-winning engineer Evren Göknar at Capitol Records in Los Angeles.
Wokunyeya is also available on "Togo Soul 70" compilation by Hot Casa Records
