Description

Guitar-Boy Superstar is the first survey of the long career of the legendary Nigerian musician, artist and poet Victor Uwaifo. Victor Uwaifo’s mission to spread and preserve the cultural heritage of ancient Benin (Modern day Edo State, Nigeria) has seen him work as a commissioner for cultural affairs in his native Edo State, a University lecturer, acclaimed bronze sculptor and poet as well as a highly successful musician. Cutting his musical teeth with Victor Olaiya (’The evil genius of Highlife’) in the early 60s, he went on to form his own band - The Melody Maestros, producing Nigeria’s biggest ever selling record with Joromi in 1965. This album focuses on his early 1970s musical output. Uwaifo invented a unique style of highlife music that he called ‘Ekassa’ - based on ancient rhythms and fused with modern Highlife instrumentation and just a dash of rock and soul. Comes with a 20 page booklet with extensive liner notes and interviews with Victor Uwaifo plus rare photos and cover art !
