Dr. Victor Olaiya’s All Stars International
ilu le o! (country hard o!)
Polydor POLP 096, 1983

The message came to me through John B. at Likembe. The death of
Dr. Victor Abimbola Olaiya, the Evil Genius of Nigerian Highlife music.
This album from 1983 was still waiting to be posted, now is a good time.
The Global groove started out on may 5, 2008 with his album ‘In the Sixties’
from 1982. The good doctor worked from the 1950’s and was one of the
pioneers of modern highlife. Sweet stuff, awesome trumpet and vocals ..

Het trieste bericht bereikte me onlangs via John B. van Likembe. De dood
van Dr. Victor Abimbola Olaiya, the Evil Genius of Nigerian Highlife music.
Deze plaat uit 1983 stond al even te wachten om geplaatst te worden, dit
is een goed moment. De Global Groove begon op 5 mei 2008 met zijn elpee
‘In the Sixties’ uit 1982. De goede dokter werkte vanaf de vroege jaren 50
en was een van de pioniers van moderne highlife. Heerlijke sound,
Olaiya’s zoete trompet en warme vokalen ..
