Ahhh Ileke, there are 3 by Lekan Ishola Adepoju (from Irun-Akoko, Ondo State, but same dialect) that are newer now.  I posted one of them "Omo nigbehin ola," a remake of an old Ekiti song.


The 3 from Elemure Ogunyemi (older).

And perhaps some others, just not tagged well on youtube.

They're the same videos I've seen online.

I thirst for more!!!

Yea, ONDO dialect are the same in some part of ekiti. My mom speaks same dialect as my Ondo relatives, but my dad's ekiti dialect is different from hers.

The cool thing about Ekiti is that we all understand each other no matter what dialect (I guess that's the point of a dialect sha) kiss kiss kiss
Re: What Is The Traditional Music From Your Town/state Like? by lakal(m): 12:38am On Sep 25, 2011
lol yes o @ileke.  It's funny how you can hear the difference from town to town.   Even two close by towns speak slightly differently, but we're all Ekitis.

1. It's easy -- take the url of a youtube video:


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


2. Where it says "/watch?v=" change to /v/


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


3. Highlight the new url and click the flash button, it will look like:

[flash=200,200]
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FEQhBEpWHsI[/flash]

4. To change the size, change where it says "200, 200" to "400, 400" or "500, 500" (or any other size)

My bad, I based it on when Enugu was under Anambra, but still, it's same thing as Atilogwu is still very much part of today's Anambra.
Re: What Is The Traditional Music From Your Town/state Like? by ChinenyeN(m): 9:18pm On Sep 25, 2011
Seriously? Because I've never seen Anambra dancing Atilogwu; never even heard of it. Only Enugu. Granted, I'm not from those places, so I wouldn't really know.
