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..?
1 Oko tun tun
– Mo jere
2 Late papa obafemi awolowo
I.K. Dairo is called ‘Father of Juju’. On this 1978 LP, he
brings us juju with a unique sound. With his accordeon he turned
yoruba juju into a complete new style. The instrument always
makes me feel at home straight away, it’s warm sound creates an
atmosphere so friendly, there’s no way around it.
1 Alhaji Waziri Ibrahim
– Oko fatimo meta
– Eyin elegan e panu mo
– Oluwa lo m’ehin ola
2 E ba mi wa olo mi
– Omoge ti o m’okunrin
– Olo yin mo fi bara idikoge
– Fun mi ni temi
Another Tribute album in juju style today. Chief Commander Ebenezer
brings it to the late Chief Obafemi Awolowo. Ebenezer flirts with
western influences on this LP and calls it ‘Miliki Sound’.
Extremely nice talking drums, sweeet juju.

2 Enia ti mo feran ju
– Wa sun laiya mi
– Abanije eku ofo
– Ara yin le nda loro
– Oke kan ga joke
– Jesu ni mo fehinti
Next to King Sunny Adé and Chief Commander Ebenezer Obey, this
is one of the greatest juju artists. Very sweet 1978 album
by Admiral Dele Abiodun & his Top Hitters Band. Don’t miss it.

I received a request some time ago for more Sir Shina Adewale, this
is Segun Adewale without Sir Shina Peters. I am not so sure I understand
the lyrics, the music however answers exactly to my critical taste.
On special request, this
is Segun Adewale.
– Emi igberaga
– Jesu loba iye
2 Owo ni gbongbo ese
– Eleyo e yo
– Omo oba lo ndade
