Nigerian Reggae queen Evi Edna Ogholi is one artist who evokes the most fond memories in Nigerian homes. As the creator of Africa’s most played Happy birthday song and other hits like Obaro, Jealousy, Ririovara-Dry your tears, to mention a few, she is Evergreen n history.
Her music came at an era when Nigeria was more supportive of love and great music and this music transcended and continues to transcend age, social class and religion, touching on social and real issues of every day life and dreams for the future. She inspired many women artists in a male dominated music and art industry of Nigeria.
After 7 great albums, she seemed to be on a musical hiatus but her timeless music kept us. Now in 2020 she has decided to bless with a new treasure-The Peace and love EP.
The album consists of eight tracks, featuring artists like Matins Showpromoter (guitarist) Winning Jah (Musician) , Jude Vee (Singer) and MC Apostle Paul Odion. Her classic “Happy Birthday” was also remixed officially, with some vocal backings from Winning Jah. The work is produced by Jossy Joe for Enorecords LLC . Evi Edna will be dropping a video soon.
In addition to her new masterpiece, Evi Edna will present an online concert on youtube on September 5, which you can access here! Wow, Get ready, people.
Listen to the new EP on digital platforms, and here .
Until our next post, stay well and blessed.
