Extra Golden was originally a collaboration between Ian Eagleson and Alex Minoff, based in Washington, and vocalist Otieno Jagwasi and drummer Onyango Wuod Omari of Kenya. The highlights of Ok-Oyot System (2006) are actually the two lengthy jams composed by the Africans, Ilando Gima Onge and Nyajondere, each a successful fusion of of benga, pop and funk.

Jagwasi died before the album was released. Undeterred the white duo and Onyango Wuod Omari hired Kenyan guitarist Opiyo Bilongo to record Hera Ma Nono (2007), that contains Jakolando and Love Hijackers in a style a bit more rocking and a bit more funky.

Thank You Very Quickly (2009) contains Gimakiny Akia that is almost hard-rock by their standards, as well as the festive Fantasies Of The Orient. The mood of the music has changed, embracing the danceable and anthemic spirit of Afro-pop of the 1970s.
