The group signed with London-based independent record label Jive Records in 1982; they enjoyed a string of hits for several years, mostly charting on urban and R&B radio stations. In 1983, the group recorded the self titled album Whodini, and its first single "Haunted House of Rock" was a Halloween-themed number that even today is still played in some clubs. Russell Simmons was the manager of the group in the 80s.[3]. In an episode of Everbody Hates Chris, the song Friends is playing in the background.
