You should even be grateful that the name of Awolowo was included in that list; a worthless bigot who died like a rat by committing suicide.

You are confusing Denis Osadebay, the first Premier of MidWestern Region with Stephen Osita Osadabey the Highlife musician.

~Bluetooth:Your tribal eye could not let you read and differentiate. Next time comprehend well before showing your colour. SMH. DENNIS OSADEBE Is not a musician. If only you did not read with a tribal mindset or google.
But yes Gani and Fela should be in the list.
