It was a moment of grief at Umugama village, Ukwulu, Dunukofia Local Government Area of Anambra state as friends and well wishers gathered for the burial ceremony of late Chief Emeka Morocco Maduka, popularly known as 'Eze Egwu Ekpili'.

Chief Morocco, who died at 70, made his mark in music with the traditional Egwu Ekpili music, as he was credited with the modernization of the traditional folklore music with modern musical instruments and sound.

His songs focused on moralistic, philosophical and numerous issues that faced the society.

Chief Morocco is survived by wife, Mrs. Bridget Ifeonugekwu Maduka and seven children.

The burial ceremony was attended by the traditional ruler of Ukwulu, Igwe Peter Uyanwa, former Governor of Anambra state Peter Obi, his producer Chief Samuel Nwobu of Sammy Sparkle, Members of Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria from different chapters and a host of other dignitaries.

The poster clearly indicates that he was 76 yet you stated here that he died at 70! undecided
Re: Morocco Maduka Buried In Anambra (Photos) by Flames000(m): 9:38am On Apr 08
U remember when there was a strong rumour that he died almost 15years back. He then came out and made a song of the rumour and it turned a hit.

I try to resonate with these music/culture but still find it difficult. I hardly hear my language and it hurts.

RIP Sir Emeka Morocco. You did not die, you joined our great ancestors.

Legend of igbo music and custodian of igbo culture.

l still play Asili 98 often. Nice beat, slow and biography of Uba na Eze. Okpotokpo nwa grin

If you want to understand the igbo culture and way of life; education, trade, marriage, investments and philanthropism. Listen to that music or tell your children to do that.


"Ndi onyibo suru we si, charity begins at home"
l don't miss repeating this line with him.

You a real nigga grin
