Chief Dr. Orlando Owoh – Money Palaver
Owoh Records OLPRS 009


Money palaver, all good and well but money is and stays
rubbish. Necessary evil. Such a shame we can’t live without.
Money and religion are the cause of war, murder and crime.
Same time it is very handy to have a load of it, money that is.
Not a day passes without us being busy dealing with it, maybe
best to palaver like Chief Dr. Orlando Owoh here, listen.
P.S. I skipped the jesu song..

Gewauwel over geld, money palaver, allemaal aardig maar het
blijft rommel. Noodzakelijk kwaad. Zo jammer dat we er niet
omheen kunnen met z’n allen. Geld en geloof zijn de oorzaak
van oorlog, moord en doodslag. Tegelijk is het handig er een
hoop van te hebben, geld dan. Er gaat geen dag voorbij of we
zijn er mee bezig. Misschien dan maar wat gewauwel zoals
Chief Dr. Orlando Owoh hier bezigt, versta er geen snars van
maar het is vast diep en zinnig. Luister zelf.
N.B. Ik heb de jesu rommel weggelaten..

tracks ;

01 – Itan omo iya meta

    Toch vind ik het een beetje raar. Als er een titel staat als Religie, aan mijn ballen, of Jesus Sucks, dan versta je het als anti-religie. Maar je verstaat niks van Dr Owoh, en je neemt (naar ik aanneem) aan dat het pro-religie is. Waarschijnlijk is het dat ook. Anderzijds zou ik misschien niet veel verschil horen in muzikaliteit. En dat laatste vind ik jammer.

      haha, ik kan je garanderen dat het in dit geval een overduidelijke gebedsdienst was Richard.
      Ik ben er allergisch voor, spijt me..maar aan de andere kant ben ik soms, vooral in de reggae
      geneigd de lord wel te accepteren, toch willekeur ban ik bang en soms hypocriet wellicht..

    We Africans believe in God and pray every day. You should not cut out songs because you don`t believe in Him. Believing in God is something beautiful and it gives you strength.

    Thanks as always. Please can you include all the songs and let the listener decide whether we want it or not.

    Necessary evil? You clearly haven’t read Kropotkin? Conquest of bread?
    And how could you deny Jesu the day after Good Friday? Have you no mercy for the deluded?
    Happy Easter.

      Does that include fascists and estate agents?

    Thank you for sharing, but why skip the song about Jesus? Is it because non-western artists are only supposed to smile and dance for the European man? When Jesus’ name comes up in African music, does it bring the “dark continent” a little too close to home for your liking? It’s more difficult (and not nearly as fun) to fetishize Africans when they are Christian. These artists make the beautiful music, and you have no say in how it should be presented. If you want to make a beautiful album of your own, which excludes any mention of Jesus, please go ahead, but please don’t censor art.

    I don’t believe in anything or doing what others (except my Missus :) ) tell me, but I’ve still got hundreds of Gospel albums. If you’re trying to get some kind of music that’s foreign (which US black music is to Europeans), you can’t go taking the choice bits out of context or you’re cheating yourself.

    ..everybody can say what they want, no problem.
    However, as long as this is my blog, I do what I like.
    It is a free world, you can visit here or don’t visit, your own choice.
    Now this the last thing I say about it, my opinion is my opinion..

      Hi Moos,

      I have been a long time follower of you and your blog. Unlike others, I appeal to your musical side to allow the Jesus song. In the Yoruba culture, religion is so interspersed with the culture that you cant do almost anything that is not religion related.

      That is why most of the musician sing about Jesus because it is a sure way to get listeners. For example, Chief Ebenezer Obey once preached that a man is allowed to be with multiple women but that is no so for women and he was supposed to a religious artist.

      I hope you get my drift. They sing about Jesus more of how American Youths like gangster rap. They certainly are not preaching the message

    I lol’d at your commentary and do appreciate that you saved me the trouble of deleting the jesu song.

    Folks are gonna squawk whenever you let them know you don’t buy into their religious preferences. That’s how they roll. Whatever…

    You are awesome, keep up the good work!
