#OldSchoolFriday : Christy Essien Igbokwe’s ‘Seun Rere’

Hey there guys,

It’s another Friday and here’s this week’s dose of Old and Evergreen Music!

This week song is a song I love so so much. It is by the singer, performer and singer, the ‘Lady of Songs’ herself- Late Christy Essien Igbokwe.

The song emphasizes on how children are expected to behave, family values and the likes.. Christ Essien Igbokwe’s amazing vocals does great justice to the song and it continues to be fresh, relevant and evergreen.

Listen and enjoy!

Happy Weekend guys!

#OldSchoolFriday: Bobby Benson’s ‘Taxi driver’

Hey guys,

Another Friday is here and here’s this week’s Old School track.

Originally performed sometime in the 50s, this highlife song tells in an interesting and funny manner, a story of man who’s fed up of a philandering woman and who no longer cares what she does! I really love the instrumentation as well.

You like?

Have a great weekend guys!

#OldSchoolFriday: Sir Shina Peters Afro Juju

Hey guys,

Been a minute… I’m sorry (again) I couldn’t bring you the #OldSchoolFriday song of last week. It just so happened.. Apologies again!

So guys.. This week Sir Shina Peters gets the #OldSchoolFriday jam of the week..

Shina-Peters-Afro-Juju-BellaNaija-September-2015

January edition of Afropolitan Vibes held like a couple of Fridays ago and Sir Shina Peters headlined the show! This show brought back memories of my 90s childhood when no birthday party was ever complete without Afro Juju on the playlist.. Y’all will agree with me that this song is a JAAAAAM!! So as you begin to prepare to turn up tonight, start of by shaking your body to AFRO JUJU

Have a great weekend y’all!

TGIF..

Love, Yemisi!

 

#OldSchoolFriday: Chief Stephen Osita Osadebe’s Osondi Owendi

Hey guys,

It’s time for another old school track! Let’s go down to the east and have a feel of Chief Stephen Osita Osadebe’s ‘Osondi Owendi! This track dates all the way back to early 80s.

This song places a lot of emphasis on instrumentation (as most old school highlife songs do). I especially love how it has a ‘spoken word-like’ beginning. I learnt the phrase ‘Osondi Owendi’ means ‘What is cherished by some is despised by some’. Quite profound!

Enjoy this great Igbo highlife transaction below.

 

I definitely love this track! Do you?

TGIF!!

Love, Yemisi!
