Sonny Okosuns

A friend of mine just told me that Sonny Okosuns is no more....he was part of a very happy childhood of mine and I used to perform so many of his songs in the living room with all the dance steps and everything....here is one of his videos that I used to act to perfection so many years ago. Thank you for the music. Rest in peace.




And in another time...this was he..(short documentary)

I saw Okosun first st the University of Ife (currently Obafemi Awolowo University), Nigeria,in the late 1970s. He represnts an unforgetable landmark in t he his of Nigerian music in post-colonial Africa.He will be particlualr missed on the Nigerian musical scene.

It's sad he's dead. I remember his 'Tire ni Oluwa' and many others. Sunny Okosun, R.I.P
