Sir Victor Uwaifo and his Titibitis of Africa – Jackpot,Makossa International 1981

Sir Victor Uwaifo, front, cd size

If you listen to African music some time, take Nigerian music.
You know Juju, Highlife, Fuji, Apala, and then you hear Sir Victor
Uwaifo. I had never heard anything like his music, every song has
something new, original, with surprising instrumental touch. It is
supposingly highlife but with an unusual poppy flavour.
Victor Uwaifo was a professional wrestler in 1960 and
hitmaker in 1970 with ‘Joromi’, and his own
studio and art-laboratory.

  1. I visited Victor Uwaifo’s museum in Benin City, last summer. Unfortunately, he was not around that day. The lady who took us around said that if he had been at home, it could have not been any problem to have a chat with him.
    When i was in Benin City i bought some old records too, most Bini Highlife. Even few of Victor. If anyone is interested in this records, i sell them @ moderate price. Mail me: djbaobab@gmail.com

  8. Zeer bedankt voor Ogiobo! Wist tot 3 dagen geleden niet van het bestaan van dat lied, en jij hebt het al bijna 10 jaar voor het grijpen gelegd.

    Wat een track. Alsof de Venlose carnavalvereniging in 1981 naar Lagos is gevlogen om daar van gemeentebudget de beste Nigeriaanse muzikanten in te huren, en er voor thuis een hit mee te maken. Een Venlose Schlager, uitbesteed aan een externe partij. In Venlo wordt zoiets voor veel te veel geld corrupt maar goed uitgevoerd, in Lagos werkt het ietsje anders. In Afrika zijn ze net zo corrupt natuurlijk, maar daar is alles goedkoper en wijkt de uitwerking nogal af van het ontwerp. Daardoor zitten we nu met Ogiobesse. In plaats van een Noord-limburgse carnavalskraker een dweilorkest, wat disco en veel te veel Nigeriaanse funkongelukjes. Heerlijk.

    Ik heb het trouwens over track 4. Die heet op de hoes “Kpomokpa Nagan Bie” maar als je het hoort moet het Ogiobo zijn. Waarschijnlijk omgewisseld met een andere titel.
