INTERVIEW IN OWO DIALECT
ORLANDO OWOH’S STATUE
Ojo Ibrahim complained bitterly that Orlando’s statue is becoming too late to be erected. He said ” What is wrong with our people ?. Are his friends bad or so poor or is it politics? It is a pity Orlando seems not to have any friends. Please don’t tell me these people are waiting for the family before they can do anything.I am sad”
Another fan of Orlando said ” my brother , so nobody in Owo can assist to erect his statue? It is a shame ”.
Apart from Orlando’s statue it is high time we honoured our Musicians like Alhaji Sikiru Ayinde Barrister, Epo Akara, Baba ‘Legba, Sony Okosun ,Kokoro, Ayinla Omowura among others by erecting their statues in their towns and naming centres and streets after them .
We are appealing to family members, fans and friends especially Die the Matter, Oba Francis Apata and other friends to rescue the situation. However hands are on deck as Adewuyi Folaranmi Adegbite is set to launch Orlando’s book soon.
I thought Orlando would bury me
Ganja and Orlando
While the mother confirmed that her son smoked ganja, his wives too confirmed it and Mama said she was aware that her late son smoked Ganja which she never supported . ”What did she do to stop him?”, she replied “I used to advise him to stop smoking Igbo, I even went extra mile to prepare agbo (herbs/concotion ) for him to make him stop it but he did not take the concoction, he would argue that if he didn’t smoke it he would not have the energy to play and sing”.
