Baba Eyin Oke and his Dadakuada Group
Kwara System
Ifelodun Sound Studio 1978

Today I want to introduce an Islamic type of Nigerian
music we haven’t heard here before. It appears to be
some kind of apala or fuji, only voices over drums. We
find Baba Eyin Oke and his Dadakuada Group. You can
read the wiki-page on ‘Dadakuada’ below. Listen ..

Vandaag wil ik je een Islamitische muziekstijl uit Nigeria
laten horen die we hier nog niet eerder hadden. Het lijkt
op apala of fuji in mijn oren, slechts gezang en drums. We
vinden baba Eyin Oke and his Dadakuada Group. Je kunt
de wiki-pagina over ‘Dadakuada’ hieronder lezen, luister ..

Chief Dr. Sikiru Ayinde Barrister, Barry Wonder
Fuji Garbage Series II
Siky Oluyole Records 1988

Already in december 2008 I posted the first volume of Chief Dr.
Sikiru Barrister’s Fuji Garbage. This second volume opens with a
little disturbing hiss but sounds better later. Although fuji does
not have any guitars normally, this album does. One way or the
other, sparkling fuji record with the great Sikiru Ayinde Barrister.
Recorded in Afrodisia Recording Studio,
on Siky Oluyole Records ..

Het was reeds in december 2008 dat ik de eerste van de drie
volumes plaatste van Chief Dr. Sikiru Ayinde Barrister’s Fuji
Garbage serie. Dit tweede volume opent helaas met een licht
storende hiss maar klinkt verderop weer prima. Alhoewel fuji
eigenlijk geen gitaren meebrengt doet deze plaat dit wel. Hoe
dan ook, dit is een sprankelende fuji beleving met de grote
Sikiru Ayinde Barrister. Opgenomen in Afrodisia
Recording Studio, op Siky Oluyole Records ..

is the reason I chose this record today, listen ..

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 ..

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 ..

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
