– Their Thoughts

CHIEF COMMANDER EBENEZER OBEY

“’Mo ti gun’gi, mo ti r’ehin aye!’ O ns’oro bi Eledumare; o nhu’wa ‘ta lo maa mu mi?’ Se’ranti, Oluwa nbe…” – Ebenezer Remilekun Aremu Olasupo Fabiyi (Chief Commander Ebenezer Obey,) one of the living pillars of Juju Music in Africa. 

(ENGLISH TRANSLATION BY DELE AJAJA)

“‘I have scaled the worldly tree and conquered the world!’ – He is speaking like the Almighty; and acting like ‘who dares challenge me?’ – Remember, there is God…”
