Joseph ( Yusuf) Olatunji was a rare gem of his time till now due to his musical composition prowess. The man was embodiment of music. He lived and breathe it. His generation personified hard work and consistency. I remembered growing up listening to this music every weekend when my father and his friends gathered to enjoy their weekends. My father used to call him a philosopher, while some of his friends called him Reverend, Pope etc. May his soul continue to rest in peace as we continue to enjoy his unprecedented artistic works.
This is a great music with huge composition. The more I listen to this music, the more I can see that musician like Wasiu Ayinde are nothing but musician copying Yusuf Olatunji’s music for living. Nigerian law maker should introduce copyrights law to enable his estate or children to get paid for their father’s hard work…. RIP baba, you too good.
Proverbial food for thought music from the Master. There are always something philosophical to learn from Yesufu Olatunji’s music. Think of the theme of this music – ” death is inevitable for all of us, rich or poor”. The song should really grab everybody’s attention – rich, poor, old and young.
