sexiestharam: Isoko in edo state? You've got to be kidding me. The isoko people are mostly from Delta state, and few from Bayelsa state. I stand to be corrected.

I pity the on coming generation, the level of moral decadence is high now despite the fact that we grew up listening to evi edna, kimono etc who passed strong moral messages through their music. Then imagine what is now being churned out by terry g, timaya etc

Akshow: common shut up. Them de talk children of 80s and 90s de talk. There was once a time Nepa was not an issue at all.

With due respect,i think YOU should 'shut up', only a fool would say that Nigeria was better in the 80s and 90s-that despicable era of military rule were corpses could litter the streets of Lagos and stay for over a week b4 the useless military govt disposed them. I dreaded going to school each morning cos we were likely going to see a decomposing corpse on the road. Dont get me wrong, jane & john doe's still occur in today's Nigerian streets but hardly exceeds a couple of hours after being sighted(which is still not good enough).

The military era of the 80's and 90's killed the creative spirit of many Nigerian entertainers from the South. I remember then,only Nigeria's struggling private sector tried in sponsoring these southern entertainers while the Northern military government only prefered to use the likes of 'Dan Maraya Jos' for all govt sponsored event.

From 1999, President Obasanjo's singular move of inviting Alibaba to govt sponsored events was what turned Nigeria's comedy industry around. Today we have lots of millionare comedians.

Our 80s & 90s musicians lost faith in Nigeria,many left to pick up menial jobs abroad and now they are too ashamed to return home and see the massives successes recorded by todays entertainers-the Psquares, Tuface,Davidos, Ice prince, Tiwa Savage, Wizkid, Alibaba, Basket mouths, AY etc.

I do feel pity for the likes of Alex O, Alex Zitto, Funmi Adams, Perterside Ottong and a host of others. I raise my glasses to the likes of Ortis Wiliki, Sunny Ade, Ebenezer Obey, Fatai Rolling Dollars, Femi kuti, Yinka Davies and Charly- these guys persevered and are now reaping the fruits of Nigeria's entertaiment boom alongside the new comers.

Nigeria still has issues but as for entertainment, Nigeria is BY FAR better today than she was in Evi Edna Ogholi's era. We have the best entertainment industry in Africa.
ONLY A DUMMY WOULD THINK OTHERWISE.

This is great and nostalgic. Emma Ogosi was a country music artiste who later made his mark producing and managing Evi who later became his wife. I can still remember him playing his guitar as one of the back-up musicians when Evi is on stage and I used to admire him so much for that.

But please don't tell me they are separated, that will be so heart-rending, theirs seemed to be one of the few closely knit celebrities relationship way back then.

All the same, nice job.
