The Hunt For Funmi Adams: Dead Or Alive? by warrenweste(m): 1:08pm On Oct 01, 2015
Its another independence day celebration and 25 years after the lovely Album All we need is love was released by the great funmi adams and cbs sony records then way back 1990,even though the country has not improved much since the song was released but at least with the new govt now we are facing a new direction for greatness.

Her most famous song was Nigeria my beloved country


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBAoRf1O6m8

First Stanza
I know a lot about my country
I know a lot because I care;
I know a lot about the (pronounced der) people
I know a lot because I’m here.

Chorus:
Nigeria, my beloved country (pronounced and elongated as ‘be-loo-ved ‘)
Working together is the key
Nigeria, my beloved country, our future is you and me

Second Stanza
Land of iron, land of coal
Agriculture, oil and coal
They are assets that we own
Round the (pronounced as ‘der’) world, our name is known

Chorus:
Nigeria, my beloved country (pronounced and elongated as ‘be-loo-ved ‘)
Working together is the key
Nigeria, my beloved country, our future is you and me

Third Stanza
I know we have a great potential
To do more than just survive
Let’s build up our strength and pride
Trust in God to be our God

Chorus:
Nigeria, my beloved country (pronounced and elongated as ‘be-loo-ved ‘)
Working together is the key
Nigeria, my beloved country, our future is you and me

her other songs include

All we need is love

Mama

Omode o

ina gizon yake

Aha ye yaro

Nnem nnem nnemo

Omolasho

and so on

The Purpose of these thread is to try to uncover the mystery of funmi adams who seem to have disappeared without no trace for the past 23 years according to the executive producer ..Tunde alabi Hundeyin(Dudu music),so deep is her mystery that almost everybody that use to work for her then even couldn't trace her or were even no where to be found besides the producer Tunde akins and editor tunde obalana.
Is these how we will just let these beautiful songstress disappear with her works which inspired an entire nation with songs of unification on brotherhood,sisterhood and what it means to be patriotic.

N.B...Pls if you have any of her vhs/vcd pls signify so we can at least revive her works again (and pls forgive my typos) Thanks smiley

I also thought about her today while watching the songs being played by TV stations as a way of celebrating Nigeria's Independence.

None of them could even play 'Nigeria my Beloved Country.' cry cry

I remember asking around some TV and Radio stations here in the southwest about 4-5 years ago. I got discouraged when no information was forthcoming about Funmi Adams after months of asking up and down.

Cheers to Octavo, Deejaygold, Warrenweste and others that have been involved in the search. Some of her songs were uploaded not too long ago. It was really nice having those, though years have caught up with the quality.
Hopefully, something better will come up one day.

Funmi Adams, here's to you. Thanks for the memories

God bless you OP. You brought tears to my eyes by reminding me of childhood memories despite the crapiness of the visuals. Such a vocal delight she was. Nowadays, all we get to hear is vulgarity and profaneness.

From what I can tell, she has strong connection with children. It is evident in most of her videos. Most of the people passionate about her and her videos were probably very young then. Most of the people who were adults back then surprisingly do not even give a damn about her or her videos. If those who were adults back then could commit some level of zeal or passion in this quest, we would have gotten her videos long ago.

Infact it baffles me that there is toooo many eye service out there,even in the damn media they seem nt to care, at times they even look at u like your a pest if u mail them online about the woman,am tired i have mailed mailed and mailed embarassed ,even the kids in the videos then dont seem to care much i met one online and he doesn't seem to be able to help,whats more depressing is the nonchalant response of the executive producer mr hundeyin dudu who ignored my pleads for the womans video and also the main producer laolu akintoba (akins) who didnt even reply cry

That's true, children were passionate about her then, the adults were more passionate about the likes of Fela, hence reason you can easily get Fela's videos. So sad, anyway to some of us she represents the true face of Nigeria which is deep sense of patriotism and I must commend all who have been involved in this search, may be if some of us were much older then, this search wouldn't have been this intensive but then we are a nation that don't value true patriots.

Yes, obviously she doesn't want to be found. I read on a blog that says a source confirmed she's alive (the post was 2014). Google search "Funmi Adams dead or alive".

there is almost no mention of her on the internet.

That means someone is actively monitoring her online presence and removing all references that point to her.

where is she from btw?
Re: The Hunt For Funmi Adams: Dead Or Alive? by warrenweste(m): 10:55am On Oct 14, 2015

I guess 2001 Flat is the name of where she lived then, and she was last seen there in 1993. Is that what you mean?
