‘Christmas Gbedu’ is a tribute to a living legend – Chief Commander Ebenezer Obey. It is a Juju medley of some of his classics, some public domain Christmas Yoruba songs, Nigerian declarative and praise songs. The fusion of Retro Juju music elements and new age sound embellished with mellifluous vocal variations will leave you permanently enthralled.
Iwa Rere It is a fusion, a hybrid of Jazz and Apala, garnished with African percussion, vintage traditional Jazz piano riffs, phrasing and comping rooted in upright acoustic bass.
Heavily ensembled with African Talking drums, with rich vocal ornamentation and harmonic Apala voice seasoning.
Wole Oni’s phrases emit varying dexterous rhythmic piano pulsations, ravished with lofty horn ensemble , gripped tight with a consistent drum pattern while the alluring voice of Laurie Idahosa narrates the rendition.
“Come Let Us Adore Him” expresses the spirit of Christmas, it speaks of the essence of the season, which is Jesus at the center of the celebration.
Midnight Crew’s ‘Igwe’ is one of the evergreen gospel song of all time in Nigeria.
UN International Youth Peace Ambassador, music consultant and music producer Wole Oni remix the ‘ Igwe ‘ song alongside with saxophonist Mike Aremu and trumpet player Victor Ademofe.
The quality of the musical expressions of Wole Oni’s piano playing, sizzling effect of the flute, the acoustic steel / nylon and electric guitar creates a delightful cohesiveness, and the deliberate inclusion of the percussions adds a surround width to ‘Cover Me Lord’, while the depth is considered as pioneering to this musical experience.
