Hola mpinji! This is AFROSYNTH, the realest African selection...

VIVA - Ooh-chi-ah (1984)

Righttrack, RTS615-12"
Producer: W. Ndlovu
Engineer: W. Ndlovu
Recorded at: Emcee Studios


Probably unrelated to the act of the same name that recorded 'Don't Turn Your Love Away' in Durban in 1985, Viva's 'Ooh-chi-ah' is a long-forgotten disco gem featuring an array of synths and electronic sounds, with lyrics taking a leaf out of Kool & The Gang's book, urging listeners to "Get your back up off the wall".
