No way for him to recover from his folies of the 70's and the damage he's done to KSA and the juju genre in general. I don't think any true juju die-hard out there will be able to forgive him for the way he treated KSA. KSA was an idol and well beloved by millions of fan. The damage is done. EPP is DONE!!! "

Outreachat said... "The Pick Peters story: Sunny Ade felt that he was being ripped off by his recording company; he started a label of his own in 1974. The label's owner took him to court for a breach of contract; in addition he assembled a new band, led by Peters, to play in Sunny's exact style. Peters did this spookily successfully and made waves when Sunny Ade was banned from making music for a year. But Peters' main rivalry was actually with Dele Abiodun, who rose to his challenge, not necessarily in support of Sunny Ade but as a route to his own breakthrough. "Orin owe" or "orin ote", Yoruba "songs of proverbial abuse" or "songs of strife", were the main thing in those days, and all three musicians were into the pernicious tradition right up to their necks. Bolarinwa Abioro, of Take Your Choice (TYC) Records also started a new band under the leadership of Sade's tenor guitarist, Bob Aladeniyi. It's all history now, and let's learn to forgive and give Peters his due, please!"

I could remember how the locals welcomed the new albums in those days - "Omo Ode's latest has just arrived!" "Who's Omo Ode! You've not listened to Adawa's latest?" "Are you kidding me? Sunny's own beats both of them." I remember the youths arguing in front of the local record seller's store. Sweet memories."

side two: Igba Wa Dowo Re / Eni Seka / A Ye Wa / Agba Osika
