Sir Waziri Oshomah & his Family
Traditional Sound Makers – WAPS 396
Decca 1977

This record from 1977 opens with a song that has more or less
the same title as yesterday’s opener. “Did you know that ‘Isah
Sule’, popularly and musically known as Sir Waziri Oshomah,
was born on the 12th february, 1948 in Osomegbe, Ekperi,
Auchi, Bendel State. He obtained his primary education at
Osomegbe primary school, after which he attended St. Andrew’s
secondary school, Fugar. He worked in both government and
private sectors before he resigned to form his traditional highlife
band in 1973 and this has given him the opportunity of preaching
to his people through his recordings…” (liner notes)
