Sometimes, l wish l could reverse the clock & go back to old time... having spent more than 20yrs in Canada, still feel my ancestral home every minute. Thanks! Chief Ebenezer Obey, no place like home for real...... I'll surely go back home-may God help us all in the west to have this goal accomplished. "Ilu eni ni ilu eni""

geo93jat said... "I remember when the record came out, he was mimicking Tunde Nightingale in style because Tunde Nightingale was very popular in Lagos then. The bass gutarist, Gabriel Ayodele remained with Obey till the end. You can hear him in the backgroud, he started to end Obey's rhythm solo with distinct rude and rough interlude that compliments Obey's unique style of juju music. Arigidi supports Obey's voice with the ultra tenor voice in the backgound. Enjoy a great sound."
