Admiral Dele Abiodun & his Top Hitters Band Super 6 -Adawa King, Olumo 1977

Dele Abiodun, front, cd size

Are you into politics ? I am trying not to be but at the
moment there’s quite some turbulence in the Dutch
political situation. Leaders of party’s come and go and
major changes take place. There will be elections in june
and the papers are full of speculations and predictions.
Personally I am very happy with a fresh new wind blowing
in The Hague in the future, the old one brought us nothing
but shame. I welcome the former mayor of Amsterdam,
Job Cohen, to the political stage, the best of luck to him.

How was the political situation in Nigeria in the 70’s ?
I found us Adawa King, Admiral Dele Abiodun, on a 1977
Nigerian juju album. He can tell us some stories,
listen well. His style’s called adawa, a mixture of juju
and Afro-beat with highlife elements. Both sides of the LP
start quite noisy but during the number it gets a lot better.

    I don’t give a f**k about politics Moos, especially not the pathetic Dutch ones .. but if you ask me – with all this ethnic multiculti integration blablabla – worldmusic is the key to unite all people around
    the globe.
    Therefore I beg all readers of this great blog : vote MOOS for president !!
