Lanrewaju Adepoju and his National Akewi Theatre
Ilé Oba t’o Jona, Ewi Hit Hot 4
Lanre Adepoju Records 1977

On this album from 1977 Lanrewaju Adepoju shows his
admiration for Sunny Adé. It is in juju and ewi style. We
see him at the back sleeve with Sunny Adé, not sure if
Sunny participates. Side one sounds like him, if you
can tell us, please do ..

Op dit album uit 1977 uit Lanrewaju Adepoju zijn bewondering
voor Sunny Adé. Het is in juju en ewi stijl. We zien hem achterop
de plaat met Sunny Adé, ik weet niet zeker of Sunny ook werkelijk
meespeelt. Kant 1 klinkt wel als hem, als jij het weet, vertel het
ons dan ook alsjeblieft ..

      Great to hear Tunji,
      may I ask how you know this ?

        It’s written on the back of the album.

    What a brilliant album here Moos!
    I was just going to say what Tunji said – the back of the album says: Special background music: Sunny Ade and his African beats.
    Thank-you for this one Moos, it is particularly welcome!
    I’m going to have many happy hours, I suspect, finding out more about Lanre and his Poetry Theatre!
