Hello nerds and nerdesses, welcome to the Osai Effect

Christmas is already around the corner and the end of the year is already in sight. We already dropped our own Christmas list a while back and so this time we’re giving you some select Tunes From Way Back. The songs on our playlist today are what we call Evergreen. Pure, indigenous African music dredged from the edge of an era. These are songs one can enjoy any day, anytime! Play them for your folks and we can guarantee you would put a smile on their faces 😉 Without further ado, let’s jump right in!

This week, we have at number 5 a lovely track from the late 90s. Although not exactly an evergreen, we are however quite sure some of us remember the song and can appreciate it. We give y’all Love Me Jeje by Seyi Sodimu!

At number 4 we have a track a number of us must have rocked and danced to growing up. The intro and instrumentals remain distinctive and awesome. A true evergreen song and a wonderful track out of our dear Mother Africa, we give y’all Gaou by Magic System!

Although this may not be in the same category as the rest of the other songs, we just could not skip this song. This is a song that is so full of pomp and beautiful lyrics. Very slow yet danceable, very unique and lovely. We give y’all Prayer for the Youth by Lágbájá!

Making the number 2 spot this week is one of the very definitions of evergreen. A massive hit in the  80s and 90s, a great, great song by our very own Mike Okri. Here he is with Omoge!

And finally, at our number 1 spot is the man referred to as Independence Child. The father of Zigima music, a son of the soil, a wonderful musician. We are ecstatic to give you Because of English by our very own Bright Chimezie!
