Apartheid Not (1981-1982) [LINK UPDATED 09/11/2016]

Bob Marley performed in Harare, Zimbabwe in 1980 (Their Independence Day!) sparking a number of reggae performers in Africa. 
Apartheid Not were one of those bands. They were a new wave/reggae/ska band from Nigeria. They released 2 albums and 2 singles (that I know of...there may be more)

Apartheid Not - African Rockers (1981)
1 Never Let You Down!
2 Mefiance
3 No More War
4 Jalousie
5 Small Axe
6 Ega Nanoa Messi

Apartheid Not - Single Rescue (1982)
1 Love Africa
2 He Sends to Me
3 Life's Road
4 Leaving Us
5 All We Need is Peace
6 Amama
7 Should'n Should be Tired
8 Know Them


The two singles that I know of are the "Love Africa" 7" with Amama as the b-side. Both of those songs are on the Single Rescue album. Then there's the Listen 7" (b/w Listen instrumental) - I don't have that one.
