I like Oritse Femi’s music – Oba Adeyeye

Oba Ogunwusi silent on fraud scandal

When newsmen asked the 42-year old monarch(pictured with ex-Super Eagles player, Obafemi Martins) the kind of music he listened to, he said: “Made in Nigeria music. Like I said earlier on, charity begins at home. We are very talented in this country, Nigerians sing very good music even in Africa. We are very talented people. I have a lot of them actually.

“I like King Sunny Ade, Ebenezer Obey, I like old school music, the very old school music that is full of wisdom. I listen to them a lot because I learn from them.

“And the music of this generation, interestingly, I like the guy that sang Double Wahala for Dead Bodi, Oritse Femi because his music makes sense but people don’t really listen to whatever he says, they just listen to the beats. But if you listen to his music deeply, it makes a lot of sense.”

It will be recalled that Oritse Femi’s “Double Wahala song” was originally sung by music icon and social activist, Late Fela Kuti.
