African Girl - Sugar Minott (1981)

"Lincoln Barrington 'Sugar' Minott was born in 1956 in Kingston, Jamaica and first entered the music business as a member of a harmony trio called The African Brothers with Tony Tuff and Derrick Howard. ... But Minott's artistry consisted in breaking down barriers and transcending the limitations of musical genres and a track like 'African Girl' on the eponymous LP did just that. Indeed, that song could be said to be a cultural or roots track from the point of view of lyrics, but the musical backing certainly places it in the lovers rock or early dancehall category. ..."
