It's unfortunate that this is listed under gospel, as that makes it hard to find. Certainly, Obey seems a deeply religious man from the publicity about him, but for an English speaker, it really doesn't matter. The band is tight and the timings are great - this is excellent music. His earlier North American releases were awful things, completely smoothed and empty, and this seems to be the man popular in Nigeria. It takes a little digging to work through the wealth of music dropped here on e-music, but what I have already purchased is excellent.

Thirdly, King Sunny Ade picked up the baton and ran with it, worldwide. And lastly, they're both fabulous, but now we can catch up with Ebenezer, the lesser-known of the two, ...thanks the eMusic!
