He is the “head commander” of the Nigerian music scene. Buhari honors Ebenezer Obey, who is 81,


With timeless hallmark songs from the 1950s, President Muhammadu Buhari celebrated Ebenezer Obey’s 81st birthday with the multi-talented singer and honored his 66 years of influential global career.

Femi Adesina, Special Assistant to Buhari on Media and Publicity, claimed in a statement on Monday that Obey’s influence in Nigeria’s music industry has elevated him to the position of “head commander” for the industry.

The statement claims that Nigeria’s music brand has gained international recognition thanks to the music genius’ career in fusing Juju and Highlife music into a musical band.

The President thought that the renowned mentor and teacher broadened his influence by imparting knowledge, doing good deeds, and practicing charity. He helped young musicians enroll in his music school and gain training and skills, advised many against destructive habits, and offered scholarships to the less fortunate while making frequent visits to orphanages and other welfare institutions.

To honor Obey’s lifelong commitment, diligence, and sacrifices that led to the triumphs and the willingness to always put God first, President Buhari gathered family members, friends, professional associates, and admirers.

The President offers a prayer for the 80-year-continued old’s good health and blessings.
