"Atomic Bomb," Onyeabor's dance anthem, played on fears that were very real at the time - and still are. Temitope Kogbe, a Nigerian DJ who grew up dancing to his father's copy of Onyeabor's "Atomic Bomb" L.P., reminds us, "Though the Cold War...had petered off in the West, Africa was the new theater for this confrontation—in Angola, Mozambique, and most tragically in the Congo, where in 1961, the U.S.-backed Mobutu to kill Patrice Lumumba, who was feared to be a communist. So the Cold War and its threat of Atomic Bomb was still very much in the spirit of the times when the record was released in 1978."
