It's finally been found! I'm personally happy, being a Koffi fan of course! Onya is what you would call the "Mother" of Tsiane. Released exactly 40 years ago. Hearing this recording has made me consider the improvement that Koffi has made vocally! In the 2nd transition of the song, his vocal sounded a bit weak. But when he re-recorded this song as "Tsiane" you can hear how much more power he has in his voice after 13 years! Even when singing Onya, I keep saying Tsiane because I'm so used to it! Haha

Plus, this is a great way to reflect on the 41 years of Koffi's career! Especially when these new archives are getting dug up. You can really tell that "Agbada" has come a long way!

Only question is, why did Koffi credit Do Akongo as the songwriter for Tsiane on the PDFP album, when he pretty much wrote the song?
