  1. I downloaded "Osinanga" to listen with a crave of that classic signature. This could be an update of the library of our rich evergreen music in Nigeria

  2. That's what I'm talking about. I find that too many pioneer Nigerian musicians "throw in the towel" at about 50. Music has no age boundary.
    I have not stopped from Nigeria to US and China. See my story at http://www.africaskyshop.com and tell me what you think. Music is meant to be shared.
