Album Notes
Released in 2000 as one of three simultaneous albums that went on to generate monstrous hits. Most of the tracks topped the Nigerian charts one after the other, spanning several years. "Olagbaja Ma Tun De O" continues to be one of the choices for welcoming Lagbaja onto the stage during live concerts. "Simple Yes Or No" admonishes the politician to give straight answers. "Gra Gra" was prescient as its innovative use of the vocoder seemed to herald in the era of the "autotune". "Toun Terin" features the bata and Lagbaja's wailing sax. The three albums (fondly labelled Lagbaja's triplets) marked Lagbaja's introduction of the Yoruba Bata drums into contemporary urban music. They were also the mainstay of the dance hit "Konko Below"…Pade mi ni sale!. "Feyin E" translates as "Smile, Be Cheerful" and is propelled by an infectious groove. "Agidigbo" also introduced the long-lost Yoruba traditional thumb piano.
