From the vaults we dug up the highlife album recorded in the early 80s by the late father of actor Chiwetel Ejiofor and CNN anchor Zain Asher, and the soukous classic ‘Sikia butamu’ (aka ‘Mume wangu ni mlevi’) by Jean Papy, with the raunchu cover art seen above. Just like in the previous show, Amal and J4 get a surprise visit. Oko Ebombo, front man of the Paris based band Project19, is in Amsterdam and decided to check out the Red Light Radio premises. We use the opportunity for him to close the show with a favorite old school tune of his, and a song from his own Project19.
