This is Steve, he looks inordinately happy. But so would you be if you had made this absolutely glorious afro-boogie instant classic. You may have heard the Frank Ocean cover of this track from 2017 or the one by Theophilus London. But ‘Only You’ was brought into the world by Steve Monite in 1984. One of those songs that smacks a smile as big as Steve’s right across your face and makes you want to dance. I came across it on the frankly brilliant compilation album on Soundway Records' Doing It in Lagos: Boogie, Pop & Disco in 1980s Nigeria a record I highly recommend buying ASAP!
