Artiste: Felix Lebarty
Song Title: Ifeoma
Song Details: Mr. Lebarty kick starts our Oldies list for this week. Even as kids, most late ‘80s folks can recollect how much this was a staple sound across radio channels. From 1989, and the “One Life To Live” album, enjoy this superb one.
Artiste: Harry Mosco
Song Title: Sugar Cane Baby
Song Details: Title track from the 1982 album off the stables of Samba, this one is by Funkees band leader Harry Mosco Agada, a group with some major buzz back in the ‘70s.

Artiste: Veno Marioghae
Song Title: Nigeria Go Survive

Artiste: Fela Anikulapo Kuti
Song Title: Zombie
Song Details: If the world comes to a close today, Fela will go down as one of the world’s finest, most listened-to in his genre; and perhaps Nigeria’s greatest ever. His materials stay banging across boards, breaking the time barrier and genre alteration issues of Nigerian music today. To crown it all, he is still RELEVANT. Fela’s themes and lyrical compositions are still as weighty as ever. Enough said, enjoy this 1977 smash below.
If you enjoyed this, which we sure believe you did, join us next week for another exciting round up of old school Nigerian songs. Peace!
