He did his music apprenticeship in the Omimah band (led by Owoh). Not sure if Wesco went on to the Kennery's band. Wesco was quite popular in the Ibadan area where i grew up in the early 70's."



Special thanks to Likembe for posting the files for this music.

If you can find more of this stuff we here in DC certainly appreciate it. Thanks for all you're doing to bring the memories back. Indeed "Aiye wa dun/ a ni oyin"

Indeed Ade Wesco was a Founding member of Orlando Owoh's Omimah band and really helped to coalesce the sound and style that made Orlando Owoh's popular in Yoruba land. I also grew up in Ibdan and Wesco was quite well known. Beautiful stuff. Aiye wa Adun is a total winner. Take's m back, brings tear to the eye in a wistful way. Good, good stuff
