Ofege: The Boy Band we loved so much.


This is a feature on Ofege the Boy Band from St. Gregory, Obalende, Lagos. Like most boy band’s across the world Ofege enjoyed a large followership in their time as one of the biggest bands of the Afrofunk era. The band members include Melvin Ukachi, Paul Alade, Mike Meme, Dapo Olumide, Felix Inneh and Olushoga Benson. Additional support came from Members of the Lagos Afrofunk band BLO. The group recorded and released their records as high school students with the last being ‘higher plane breeze’ in 1978. As with other Boy bands around the world, Ofege enjoyed a lot of followership around the country before their eventual disbandment.
