Democracy: Adewale Ayuba releases new musical album, “Isé Olúwa”



Legendary Fuji musician, Adewale Ayuba, popularly known as “Mr Johnson”, is set to release a new musical album titled “Isé Olúwa”, in commemoration of this year’s Democracy Day celebration.

Ayuba disclosed this while speaking with our correspondent on Wednesday in Lagos.

According to him, the four-track album to be released on June 14 is aimed at pacifying Nigerians on current economic challenges.

“One of the tracks, “Humility”, emphasises the fact that Nigeria is not a destroyed nation, while the slogan “Nigeria ko wo”, repeatedly emphasised in the song means ‘Nigeria is not collapsed’.

He said the song was for listeners to know that the nation will survive the current economic hardship and in no time revert to good old days.

“The tracks in Isé Olúwa album are: ‘Humility’, ‘Jo’folorun’, ‘Jafo Authority’ and ‘Bonsue On The Go USA’.

I came up with this album to deliberately speak to Nigerians in a way of advice.

“We all know that we have not elected a president from America or other climes, we elected a Nigerian like us. So, we should exercise patience, support the government and make things work again.

“Current economic challenges did not start today and no one can say that President Bola Tinubu is not working, we must be consistent in our prayers for our leaders, for divine help.

“I also emphasise the need to show love, which Yoruba people refer to as ‘Ife Eleyele’. This is the kind of love exhibited by the pigeons, unequalled love that will not make an individual to jettison his or her neighbours, friends and relatives, in face of challenges.

“When we exhibit this, we will have a sane society,” he said.

Ayuba said that the album would be accessible on all musical distribution platform when released.

He urged his fans across the globe to watch out for the release and position their minds to be inspired through the songs.

Emphasising on the need to exhibit love to one another, the Bonsue-crooner said Nigerians must be ready to jettison tribal, religious and political differences to move forward.
