YORUBA MUSIC-MAKERS OF YESTERYEARS

– Their Thoughts

ORLANDO OWOH

YORUBA: “As’otito aye o, s’oun l’osika ilu o; osika ilu o, s’oun las’otito aye o… Aye o f’olododo; eke lo ku ta’nba kiri…” – Stephen Oladipupo Owomoyela (Dr. Orlando Owoh,) eminent Nigerian composer, vocalist, guitarist, and social critic.

ENGLISH TRANSLATION BY DELE AJAJA: Society perceives the forthright person as the immoral one; and the immoral person as the forthright one… The world no longer seeks upright personalities; falsehood is all that we are peddling.
