- excavatedshellac.com: The label Opika was based in the Belgian Congo, and is equally as important as the Congolese labels Ngoma and Loningisa, and just as rewarding to track down. It’s not clear from my research how long Opika lasted as a company, but probably not much further than the mid- to late 1950s., Link to the record
