Hello groovers, yesterday I received some really nice
feedback from one of our visitors. Obiora Obikwelu from
Minnesota USA is from Nigerian descent and grew up with
the Nigerian Highlife of Oliver de Coque, Oriental Brothers
and such. He started his own little group inspired by the
music of his ancestors and sent us some copies of their
songs to share with you. Let’s see what happens.
To begin with, some more studying material from Nigeria.
Chief Stephen Osita Osadebe is back with an album I did
not post yet. Other blogs have brought it but to complete
our Osadebe discography ( some fine day ) I didn’t want
to keep it from you and today is a good day to do so.
It’s frontsleeve is damaged quite bad but I did not find
a solid replacement. It is what it is. The rhythms
however are just breathtakingly wonderful..
Thank you Obi for your mail and it’s fantastic to hear what
came out of your Nigerian hat. I want to ask you visitors to
check youtube for their other songs, they have a few more
there to listen to. Listen to Chief Stephen Osita Osadebe
and lend an ear to the Okwute Melody Makers of Africa
as well, hope you like’m..
