Etsako(r), Afenmai Theme Week, day 4
Professor Adomagbo Irene and his
Weppa-Wanno Dance Band of
Agenebode Etsakor Local Government
Bendel State – Alhaji & Alhaja Y. Okponi
Coconut 1982

From Agenebode, the centre of Etsakor territory, we find this
album which is in pretty good condition. It is volume 7 of Professor
Adomagbo Irene’s Weppa-Wanno Dance Band. Decent sound.
The professor is more of a speaker than singer, something we
find with more Nigerian artists. Sleeve is in tact, vinyl too,
awesome music, a rarity, get it & spread it ..

Uit Agenebode, het centrum van Etsakor gebied, vinden we dit
album dat in tamelijk goede conditie verkeert. Het is volume 7

Solide geluid. De professor is meer spreker dan zanger, iets wat
we bij meer Nigeriaanse artiesten aantreffen. Nette hoes,
nette plaat en te gekke muziek, een zeldzaamheid, luister ..

tracks ;

01 – Oghena zi megugw miegbete alhaji yisa okponobi
02 – Lawyer obaghidi
03 – Seven seven ozekhome
04 – Patrick ogwha

    Hi Moos,
    I do not know much about Nigerian Highlife , but seeing all these posts with, to my opinion ,very nice covers, I get intrigued.. As most of us on this earth I have very little time to listen to all these recordings. Can you give us some recommendations where to start exploring this music? I say us because I suppose I am not the only one with this feeling. Superb that an individual like you does the work which in fact a university or a radio station should do. Your server is a vault for quality music neglected by a so called international music industry who states year after year that Western bands like the Beatles are the finest in this world. To all Beatles fans I am sorry they got obviously their value, but their contribution to the international music scene is so over rated. They were just lucky they had the music industry behind them.
    thanks for the endless effort you put into this this blog. Rik

    Thank you for your kind words Rik, if I were you I’d start listening to some Waziri Oshomah. I think his music belongs to the most accessible. Then maybe this Professor Adomagbo Irene.. Possibly Etsakor music is not the easiest type of
    Nigerian highlife, the more you listen, the more you get the hang of it ..
