REMINISCENCES: NIGERIAN MUSIC-MAKERS OF YESTERYEARS

WAKA ABOUT – by Nelly Uchendu

Hanhanhanhan (chanting……………..)

If you want to marry a husband,

Never you marry a waka about;

If you marry a waka about o,

Tomorrow, trouble, trouble o – trouble.

Na trouble, trouble, trouble…

So so palaver, na so so trouble – trouble, trouble…

(Continued with the story of a “Waka-About”……)

* Waka About: “Wayo number one and drunkard and gambler and father of many children and thief and robber… money-doubler and smuggler, maker of counterfeit…”
