Alhaji ‘Chief’ Sikiru Ayinde Barrister
& his Progressive Fuji Commanders – Ore Lope
Sik-Oluyole Records 1981

Yesterday I thought I was posting Sikiru Ayinde Barrister but received
the following comment by Ayo;

“Moos, this is not Sikiru Ayinde Barrister. This is his protégé. He started
out as a roadie in his band, then left to form his own band. That’s why
he took his nickname. He’s simply known as Wasiu Ayinde, but he’s
gone by different names over the years. King Wasiu Ayinde Marshall,
KWAM1, and now he goes by the name K1 De Ultimate. Please post
more of his and Sikiru Ayinde Barrister’s albums.”

I clearly got mislead and make up for that mistake today.
Now this truly is Sikiru Ayinde Barrister with an album from 1981.
Heavy duty fuji from the master himself, listen and enjoy ..

Gisteren plaatste ik een album in de veronderstelling dat het de grote
Sikiru Ayinde Barrister betrof waarbij hij een ietwat andere naam had
gebruikt. Ik werd in de maling genomen door een van zijn fanatieke
volgers zoals blijkt uit het voorafgaande commentaar van Ayo hetgeen
ik niet vertaal, zie boven. Vandaag maak ik mijn stommiteit goed door
een plaatje van de meester zelf te posten. Luister en huiver met
de vette fuji sound van Alhaji ‘Chief’ Sikiru Ayinde Barrister ..

During our Nigerian Week recently I promised to post some
Sikiru Ayinde Barrister. The album we have here is from 1985.
His albums come under various names, on this one he is called
Alhaji Wasiu Ayinde Barrister and his Talazo Fuji Commanders.
It is very powerful, the drums are just amazing here.
Barrister, 35 years of age on this occasion,
rocks like never before ..

Tijdens onze Nigeriaanse Week onlangs heb ik beloofd wat
werk van Sikiru Ayinde Barrister te plaatsen. De plaat die we
hier hebben is uit 1985. Zijn albums verschijnen onder diverse
namen, op deze noemt hij zich Alhaji Wasiu Ayinde Barrister
and his Talazo Fuji Commanders. Het is een zeer krachtige
elpee, de drumpartijen zijn super. Barrister, die
hier 35 jaar was, rokt als nimmer tevoren ..

If we look at our fuji posts so far, we find some Kollington
Ayinla, some Sikiru Ayinde Barrister, Salawa Abeni and Micky
Adisa. Only fourteen records until now. Here’s another Kollington
Ayinla for the occasion of our Nigerian Week, I’ll post some more
Sikiru Ayinde Barrister as well in the near future. Crazy rhythms,
deep vocalisation and some Hawaian steel guitars, enjoy ..

Als we terugkijken naaar de fuji posts tot dusver vinden we
enkele Kollington Ayinla’s, enkele Sikiru Ayinde Barristers,
Salawa Abeni en Micky Adisa. Slechts veertien platen zover.
Hier is nog zo’n fijne Kollington Ayinla ter ere van onze
Nigeriaanse Week. Ik zal binnenkort ook nog eens wat
plaatsen van Sikiru Ayinde Barrister. Geniet van de
waanzinnige ritmes, diepe vokalen en wat
Hawaiaanse steel gitaren ..

Micky Adisa & his Original Fuji Londoners Ka Tepa Mose, Ogo Oluwa Records 1982

Micky Adisa, front

Somewhere during last week I received a request for more
Kollington Ayinla or fuji in general. Do you know these guys
already ? Strange thing if you ‘google’ Micky Adisa you’ll
find nothing and if you google Fuji Londoners you get to
Sikiru Ayinde Barrister or the Royal Talazo Fuji Londoners.
One way or the other, this an lp by Micky Adisa
& his Original Fuji Londoners,
listen..

Alhaji Chief Kollington Ayinla andhis Fuji 78 Organisation -American Yankee, PolyGram Records 1987

Kollington, front

Dear Groovers around the Globe, I am still enjoying my
summer break but to show a sign of life, this here post.
Zippyshare is a temporary thing and I seriously think
getting my own serverspace is the best solution for the
future. I want to say welcome back in cyberspace Nauma.
So good to see they can kill our blogs but they can’t kill
our spirits. “music has always been free, like the birds,
the water we drink, the sun and in reality there is no way
to cage music if you don’t want to kill it. have you heard
of anyone able to imprison love, passion, despair or joy ?
very few seem to remember or even understand this simple
truth but more are starting to realize it.”( great quote Nauma )
I hope you enjoy Chief Kollingtons ‘American Yankee’. Did you
know the word ‘yankees’ comes from two very common Dutch
names, ‘Jan’ and ‘Kees’ ? funny thing. The Netherlands are going
through a period of warm to hot weather at the moment and today
we’ll reach temperatures up to 38º Celsius in some parts. Perfect
occasion for a trip to the Amsterdam Vondelpark this afternoon.
The Global Groove Soundsystem will settle down under the big
trees next to Vondel’s statue from about 15.00 hrs. If you are in
the opportunity to pass by, please do. We’ll free some tropical
melodies in the open air like, samba, calypso, reggae, rumba,
son montuno, highlife, forró, juju, chimurenga, benga, ska, etc.

Alhaja Queen Salawa Abeni andher Waka Moderniser – I Love You,Kollington Records

Salawa Abeni, front

This week I received a request for some juju, fuji or apala.
It’s been some time but we had her before at the GG.
This is a type of music I enjoy once in a while but know
absolutely nothing about. The rhythms are overwhelming
and I think Queen Salawa Abeni has a huge voice,
why don’t you give it a try ?

Alhaji ( Chief ) Sikiru Ayinde Barrister & his SupremeFuji Commanders – Eku Odun, Siky Oluyole Records Ltd. 1982

As usual in fuji music, one Chief honours the other on this
1982 album. I see a certain link between the Chiefs we know
from the New Orleans Mardi Gras, such as these,
and the Chiefs we see in fuji music. They both wear pink dresses..,
no but serieus, we better don’t compare Big Chief Jolly with
Chief Benjamin Famuyiwa. This LP was requested by
one of our visitors, enjoy it.

he made lots of records. Check out ‘Iwa’ from 1982, rhythm sweetness.

To continue we have us an album by Alhaja Queen Salawa Abeni, she
was the one with two requests so here she is. Salawa has a full and
strong voice, surrounded by all those drums this sounds fabulous.
Rare Nigerian material you don’t get to hear every day, check it
and stay tuned, there’s some great stuff yet to follow.
