salawa abeni in concert 2

"What about myself?" Salawa Abeni asked the audience as her energetic show neared its end. She called herself "the Tina Turner of Africa", with something of a "Madonna" thrown in too. If you don't know, now you know.

Mo Gbohun De, she sang - meaning: "I've brought the voice."

A cross between Tina Turner and Madonna? What a hybrid. Seriously now though, I know she's been at this business for more than two decades-she's got staying power. I remember the "song-fights" between Ayinla Kollington and Sikiru Ayinde Barrister (In retrospect, what were they thinking when they chose those names?)over her at that time."Awa l'ako j'esu awe o, k'o to ri wa fin"-(Porn to the uninitiated).
MW, you're a groupie, chasing Rachael Oniga and Sola Fosudo around train stations ;)
p.s. I love you
