Man what is worse is his daughter can’t get her share of his assets with out help with the legal fees and lawyers. She already contacted me and if I can send her $1000, she will gladly pay me $100,000 USD once the her rightful inheritance is restored.


I remember Uchenna writing on his blog about attempts to talk to and license stuff from Onyeabor, and how difficult and disheartening it was, he basically gave up (I think he was going to do it on his own Comb & Razor Sound label). It was never clear to me if Luaka actually licensed the stuff or not.
