I have come with my everyday apologies again. I’m sorry, things just keep on happening..
Anyway today I am bring you a really really fresh one. Dropped on the radio for the very first time today! And it’s really different. It’s an amazing spoken word piece with a soulfully rich hook by Tonie the Emperor and Narrator pHisayo. It’s a great story with a beautiful plot twist that I haven’t been able to get over since I heard it.
It’s another amazing Friday to listen to good good good music! Today we’re talking about a good old highlife track which I’m sure many people know very well- ‘Joromi by Sir Victor Uwaifo’.
I’m not sure the exact year of the exact year this song was done but it definitely has to be long long time ago. This highlife track was done as a sort of praise for the great Joromi, who happens to be a great wrestler in ancient Bini (Benin) mythology, and who fought and won major battles. The ‘Kese-Kese’ I hear is like an onomatopoeia for ‘Kill them, defeat them and so on’. (You may confirm this if you know!)
I love this really relaxing subtle highlife sound which shows the legend’s proficiency in instrumentation.
Have a listen below.
