Mono Mono, the Lagos Afrofunk and Rock band that made Lagos Funky.


Joni Haastrup founded Mono Mono in Lagos after touring Europe with Ginger Baker”s Airfoce II band. Haastrup skipped another leg of European and American tour with Ginger Bakers second tour ensemble the SALT band to fulfil his ambition of running his own show and performing his songs with his band around clubs and venues in Lagos. Other notable members of the band include Baba Kenneth Okulolu and Candido Obajimi. Most members relocated to the United State of America to ply their trade. This episode features this very eclectic band that gave us two successful albums ‘Give Beggars a Chance’ and ‘ The Dawn of Awareness’ both released under EMI Record Label.
