Don't forget Alagba Vasco Dagama Adio from Owu in Abeokuta, he is the one with all the bongo drumming that he did with many straw sticks that goes continously on in the background of this sound and many of obey's music and also Mutiu Kekere playing the talking drum added another dimension to Obey's music.

The strong rhythm very dominant and louder than the rest was Obey himself, the thin wailing sound was accompanying guitar by Monday John. Most people did not know Obey was a very skilled guitarist himself. I had the pleasure of seeing them played and practiced. We should also compliment Mathew Baba l'egba on the bass drum, he comes out across very regular. Arigid and Oke Aminu contributed tenor and octave vocals both sat on each side of Commander. Gabriel Adedeji was on bass guitar.

Hi Dami - Sorry for the problem. I think there is something wrong with blogspot. The whole song is posted here. If you click forward the song starts again. The same thing has been happening on other post too and then it resolves. I don't know what the problem is exactly but I hope it is temporary. Sorry. ~ Cole
