Mike Ejeagha and his Premier Dance Band
Onye Nwe Ona Ebe, Onye Enwero Ana Ebe
Polydor 1982

Always a pleasure listening to story teller Mike Ejeagha.
His Igbo highlife is very relaxed, in a style compared to
that of Chief Stephen Osita Osadebe, Ali Chukwumah
or Celestine Ukwu, to name a few. The latter started his
career under the guidance of Mike Ejeagha. We can’t
have enough of his fine records, listen ..

Het is altijd een genoegen naar zijn platen te luisteren,
zelfs als ze een beetje ruis met zich meebrengen. De
Igbo highlife van Mike Ejeagha is zeer ontspannen, in
een stijl te vergelijken met die van Chief Stephen Osita
Osadebe, Ali Chukwumah of Celestine Ukwu, om er maar
een paar te noemen. De laatste begon zijn carrière onder
de bezielende leiding van Mike Ejeagha. We kunnen
nooit genoeg van zijn muziek hebben, luister ..

soon to come, movie ‘Gentleman’.

    Mike Ejeagha is so unique. I especially love the trio work. Pretty sure I discovered him here and have since gotten everything I could find. Thanks for keeping my fire burning bright, Moos!! Much appreciated!!

    A nice addition to his pantheon and a sweet piece of head candy for our ears. An uplifting warm session to listen to after a big dump of snow here in the Pacific northwest. A fine way to end February. Thanks Moos

    Hope you are well, Moos. I just heard a new (to me) juju artist, Emperor Wale Olateju. He only has 2 LPs listed on Discogs, but if there’s a chance YOU have any to share? I figured you would have already, but worth asking.
    Also, I have never had any issues with your files. Everything @ 320 on my end!!
    Thanks for all you do, always.

      Hi DiJit,
      good to hear about the @320,
      concerning Emperor Wale Olateju,
      I’m sorry to say I don’t know him
      and have none of the above albums.
      I’ll keep an aye open though ..
