Alhaja Batuli Alake
& her Waka Group
Road Safety
Igbalaiye Record Company 1991

Through this album Alhaja Batuli Alake was contributing
to realise less carnage at Nigerian roads. She was one of
the great waka artists in the field. Online we find her as
Batile or Batili instead of Batuli like on this record. Read
her Wiki page and learn more about this Yoruba celebrity.
The elpee ‘Road Safety’ is a 1991 release. I accidentally
switched sides 1 and 2, ‘Road Safety’ as
a title now comes first ..

Alhaja Batuli Alake trachtte door deze plaat een bijdrage
te leveren aan de veiligheid op Nigeriaanse wegen en zo
minder dodelijke ongelukken voor mens en dier te be-
werkstelligen. Online vinden we haar als Batile of Batili.
Zij was een van de eerste vrouwen die de Waka Fuji op
elpee zette. Lees haar Wiki pagina en leer meer over
deze Yoruba coryfee. Ik heb van deze 1991 uitgave
per ongeluk de a en b zijde omgedraaid, zo komt
‘Road Safety’ als nummer het eerst ..

Alhaja Queen Salawa Abeni andher Waka Moderniser – I Love You,Kollington Records

Salawa Abeni, front

This week I received a request for some juju, fuji or apala.
It’s been some time but we had her before at the GG.
This is a type of music I enjoy once in a while but know
absolutely nothing about. The rhythms are overwhelming
and I think Queen Salawa Abeni has a huge voice,
why don’t you give it a try ?

tracks;

1 Bi eye oni eye sinu
– Suru lo dara
– Asa pelu adie
– Alhaji Chief Kollington Ayinla je akeweje
– Oro ibanuje ko ni kan wa
– I love you
2 Eku odun eku iyedun
– Eyin iya eba mi re
– Apada saburu ko ni bawa
– Awa ko ni mo orori omo wa
– Ko seye to le fara we igun
– Olorun lo fun wa lorin wa ko

Alhaja Queen Salawa Abeni, front, cd size

To continue we have us an album by Alhaja Queen Salawa Abeni, she
was the one with two requests so here she is. Salawa has a full and
strong voice, surrounded by all those drums this sounds fabulous.
Rare Nigerian material you don’t get to hear every day, check it
and stay tuned, there’s some great stuff yet to follow.

tracks;

1 Ere lawa se
– Awa ni omode olorin
– Kosi ibi t’odabi ile
– K’eya ba mi lo ijesha
– B’araiye ngbogun
2 Oba ayeraiye
– Egbade f’alade
– Eje k’ajo jo
– Late Alhaji Taoreed Abedigba
– Owo pelu-omo
– Ise ori ranmi
