THE SIMISOLA AND EBENEZER OBEY SUPER JAM AND THE AIMASIKO MIX

Nigeria’s musical lineage sprawls wide and deep. Far into the very fabric of society. From the times of old, to the nascent days of the colonial construct that became Nigeria, and now in our ultramodern age, the region has always worn its musical pride like an ornament.

A pride so strong that it is now rubbing off on the rest of the world with unprecedented speed.
So it is always a pleasure to see the past and present come together to make magic–just like Simi and Ebenezer Obey did on “Aimasiko Remix”.

Talented Nigerian songstress Simi dropped the remix to the adulation to critics and fans alike. Aimasiko was released in 2017. The song comes from her 2017 debut album ”Simisola” which contains 15 outstanding tracks, but the remix which features Ebenezer Obey was released in 2021 and performed at the 2021 Headies Awards.

The “Simisola” album only features Adekunle Gold, a Nigerian singer who also happens to be Simi’s husband. On “Simisola”, you will find some songs that went on to become Nationwide hits like Jamb Question, Joromi, Tiff, Remind Me and many more.

For the younger generation who don’t know about the generational genius of Ebenezer Obey, he began his professional career in the mid-1950s after moving to Lagos from Ogun State. After tutelage under Fatai Rolling-Dollar’s band, he formed a band called The International Brothers in 1964, playing highlife–jùjú fusion.

The band later metamorphosed into Inter-Reformers in the early-1970s, with a long list of Juju album hits on the West African Decca musical label. He went on to become one of the biggest musical icons the country has ever seen.
Seeing him embrace the younger generation and collaborating with them is a thing of joy. His hazy compelling voice complemented the delicate croons of Simi, and struck a satisfying balance. Is there more to come from the legend? Hopefully
