Dele Abiodun for most of his musical career remained an ally of Sunny Ade against the ever-present antagonist such as Emperor Pick Peter.  His strength lies in his indepth use of street-wise proverbs, most times with caustic taste against his enemies.  Strange enough, he came from a part of Edo-state where Yoruba is not spoken. Yet, he is able to carve a niche for himself in the pantheon of Yoruba Juju hierarchy.

side two: Dele ti de / Won ngbe e on yan / Eru o'ba mi / Bini binu / A te be
