Zo’n 30 jaar geleden kende ik slechts King sunny Adé en Chief
Ebenezer Obey als we het over juju hebben. Ondertussen zijn
er al iets van 9 verschillende juju artiesten vertegenwoordigd
op deze site. Vandaag komt er weer een bij die we nog niet
eerder hadden. Uit 1975 op African Songs Limited hebben
we the Wizard Guitarist Emperor Pick Peters and his
Seidormatic System, derde volume, check hem nu..

Some 30 years ago I only knew King Sunny Adé and Chief
Ebenezer Obey if we speak about juju music. Meanwhile we
count about 9 different juju artists at this page. Today we add
one we didn’t see here yet. From 1975 on African Songs Limited
we’ve got the Wizard Guitarist Emperor Pick Peters and his
Seidormatic System, third volume, check him out now..

Re-Post
Thony Adex and his Sedico Band
Jet Sound 1978

Thony Adex, voorkant

Na een kleine adempauze zijn we vandaag weer terug met
een stukje fijne juju. Ik heb de laatste tijd veel naar dit spul
geluisterd en los van de verstopte boodschap, die we toch
niet verstaan, blijft de sound onweerstaanbaar. Uit 1978 en
op Jet Sound is dit een plaatje dat we al eerder hadden,
een re-post dus maar in een ander jasje dan voorheen..

After a short break we are back today with a fine piece of
juju. Lately I’ve been listening a lot to this stuff and part from
the hidden message, which we do not understand anyway,
the sound remains delightful. From 1978 and on Jet Sound,
this is a record we had before, in other words a re-post but
in a different sleeve than the one we posted in 2014.

Juju lovers opgelet ! Hier is prince Thony Adex, de Master Juju
Guitarist volume twee. Met zijn Band Sedico System brengt hij

tussen de talking drums, vegende bezem geluiden, subtiele

Chief Commander Ebenezer Obey and
his International Brothers
Decca 1972

Ebenezer Obey, voorkant

Chief Commander Ebenezer Obey heeft een stapel platen
gemaakt van ik weet niet hoeveel. Met de veertien stuks
die hier tot nu toe geplaatst zijn maken we slechts een klein
beginnetje. Deze vijftiende elpee op de GG komt uit 1972 en
verkeert in perfecte staat vor de 44 jaar die hij heeft. Het
begint met een hallelujah en ik had ‘m bijna terug in de
kast gezet maar de muziek is zo goed dat ik hem niet
kon laten staan. luister en huiver..

Chief Commander Ebenezer Obey made such a pile of albums,
we’re only getting started with the fourteen we had so far. The
one we have today is from 1972 and is in perfect condition for
its 44 years of age. It begins with a hallelujah which almost
made me decide not to post it but the music is too good to
be neclected. Enjoy listening to Ebenezer Obey..

Adawa King Admiral dele Abiodun
and his Top Hitters Band
Mo Kepe Oluwa, Olumo 1979

Dele Abiodun, voorkant

Alweer een flinke tijd geleden dat we hem hier zagen. Dele Abiodun
met zijn adawa sound, een vorm van juju uit Nigeria. Het begin is wat
rommelig maar als de band even later warm begint te draaien komt
het lekker op gang. Probeer het eens, lekkere talking drums maken
deel uit van de prima ritme sectie..warm weer muziek..

Already quite some time ago we saw him here. Dele Abiodun and
his adawa sound, a type of juju from Nigeria. It starts out a bit
sloppy but when the band warms up a little later they really
are getting up steam. Give this a try, nice talking drums
are part of the swell rhythm section.
..warm weather music..

Uncle Toye Ajagun, achterkant

Het mooie van muziek uit Africa is dat er telkens weer artiesten
opduiken die je nog nooit eerder gezien of gehoord hebt. Dit is
er weer zo een. Uncle Toye Ajagun doet in juju en komt uit de
Joruba hoek. Ooit begonnen in 1962, bracht twee platen uit tot
1975 en brak uiteindelijk met zijn derde ‘Magbe Magbe’ door
tot het grote publiek. Deze plaat uit 1978 verkeert
na 38 jaar nog in uitstekende staat, een gelukkie.
Luister naar Gbedu Beats..

One of the nicer aspects in collecting African music is the fact
one keeps walking into artists we never seen or heard before.
This record brings us such an artist. Uncle Toye Ajagun does
juju and is from the Joruba corner. Started out in 1962 he made
two albums untill 1975 that did not score too well and finally
reached the big public with his third record called “Magbe Magbe’.
After 38 years this record from 1978 is in perfect condition
which is exceptional. Listen to Gbedu Beats..

I.K. Dairo, front

Some time ago we had volume two, today it’s volume one’s turn.
I.K. Dairo is the man who’s juju is now called Ashiko music, after
it’s old and original name. Playing guitar, talking drum and acor-
deon and singing in various languages he is the group’s main
man. After a firm cleaning the vinyl sounds as good as
new so get it & spread like you’re used to.

I.K. Dairo & his Blue Spots

It does have a couple of pops and some scratches,
somewhere over the years it has lost a corner of it’s sleeve.
This album by the great I.K. Dairo has made a journey before
ending up with us. Baba Aladura was his nickname, the very
popular I.K. Dairo played guitar, acordeon and talking drum.
He called his juju ‘ashiko music’ like it used to be called in the
past. This is volume two to begin with, I’ll post the first volume
some time later. Enjoy listening to I.K. Dairo & his Blue Spots
and don’t forget to find the other seven I.K. Dairo lp’s..

King Sunny Adé – Mo Dupe ( Gratitude )
Sunny Alade Records 1985

King Sunny Adé, front

As we say in the Netherlands, promise causes guilt. It means
I am in debt to one of our visitors who I promised to post this
record. I kept it on the shelf because it contains jesus titles.
I am a anti religious person, I take distance from any religious
message and support the music as it is, very nice juju. I truly
love the sound but hate the fact that juju artists act like
priests sometimes. So Tony, enjoy this album, the music
is great. If anyone is looking for more King Sunny
Adé, just fill in his name and search,
top left, there are 22 other titles..

tracks;

1 Ka jo mu jo
– Mo bebe fori
– Jeki ntegbe
– Baba ma doju timi

It is a coincidence, I received a request from Tony,
asking for King Sunny Ade because today is his 67th
birthday. I checked the KSA lp’s I haven’t posted yet
but the only three left unposted are not my favourites.
When an lp has god and jesus titles I get irritated and
am unable to post. It just so happens I have this album
by Thony Adex with or about King Sunny Ade. You can
see his picture on the frontsleeve and his name is in
the titles as well. I have no idea about the link, if King
Sunny is performing here or if it’s all about him, if any
one can tell us what the link is, would be very much
appreciated. So Tony, an album by Thony Adex,
hope you enjoy it anyway..

..oh and eh, happy birthday King Sunny !

We had one of his lp’s before and two with Shina Peters.
Fortunately this time no christian songs as far as I know.
I love the sound of juju but can’t stand any religious messages.
This album has some hiss at the beginning and side two is
completely out of centre but sounds fairly okay. 1987
Yoruba juju you don’t want to miss, I especially
love the rhythms, how about you..?

Yesterday we tried to support Ghana with it’s game
against Germany and it seems we booked a tiny succes.
They played 2 – 2 and it was a great match. Last night we
had Nigeria against Bosnia-Herzegovina, I am too late to
give them our support with this lp but they gained their 3
points anyway. Listen to I.K. Dairo’s tribute to the Green
Eagles of Nigeria and enjoy, 1976 juju from the top shelf..

Admiral Dele Abiodun & his Top Hitters Band Olumo 1978

Dele Abiodun, front

Posting juju music is something I’ve been doing right from
the start of this blog in 2008. It is the sound of juju that I
really love and promote, the message however is often one
I can not support. As soon as jesus titles appear my hair
stands up of annoyment, being heretic I must take distance
from any religious content. That being said we can now sit
down and listen to the funky twist in Admiral Dele Abiodun’s
juju, one I can appreciate a lot. So don’t be affraid and suck
in this slice of Nigerian sweetness from 1978, enjoy..
