Michael Babatunde Olatunji, born in Lagos, went to United States in 1950. He was the pioneering African Act who introduced our music to the world. He was part of the civil right movement and marched alongside Rev Martin Luther King, had musical collaborations host of household names like Quincy Jones, Carlos Santana, Stevie Wonder and even shared the stage with Bob Marley, Patti LaBelle! His first album in 1960, 'Drums of Passion' is unquestionably the first recording to popularize African music in the west, becoming immensely successful and selling over five million copies In 2002, it was released as a single layer stereo and SACD by Columbia Records. In 2004 the album was added to the American National Recording Registry. Sadly there has been not many mention of him here in Nigeria or Africa as a whole.... I still remain your number one power.bank merchant......holla at me for your laptop powe.rbank. Music is the food of the soul! @admin take a look....his music are timeless and very engaging, he has some very simple songs that are easy to learn for non-native and lots of African drum only tracks.
