Celestine Ukwu & his Philosophers National
Ndu Ka Aku, Philips 1974

Celestine Ukwu, front

Celestine Ukwu started his career in the 60’s under Mike Ejeagha.
Early 70’s he started with the Philosophers National. He was soft
spoken and gentle and his music was more laid back than other
Igbo Highlife. The band was truly philosophical as their songs dealt
with social evils and the need for peace. Tragically Celestine Ukwu
died in a car crash in 1979, not yet 40 years old.
