ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Like its other two sibling albums, "Me" & "Abami", this album produced several hit tracks. The political commentary "Suuru Lere" successfully encapsulates Nigeria's political history while preaching a message of patience and hope. The fun song "Nothing For You" remains an anthem till today. "Prayer For The Youth" features the voice of Bola Ige saying a prayer. He was assassinated in 2001 while in office as Nigeria's attorney general. "Me And You No Be Enemy" continues to be an important message as the Nation continues to witness bouts of barbaric fratricide. "Ilu Re O" would translate as "This Is The Drum". It features the Dundun, the Yoruba hourglass talking drum. The Dundun, though less popular in contemporary music than the smaller but similarly shaped Gangan, is actually the mother drum of that family of talking drums.
