Fast forward to 18years later and brrrrrrr! Weird MC ‘s still right up there dropping hit after hit – “Allen Avenue“, “Ijoya“, “Riranwo“. Wow! talk about longetivity.
I first heard of the Weird one in 1992 (or was it 93?) when my bruver Lolade bought home her tape, he had gotten from his friend from the now defunct Weirdos group and forced me off the tape player so he could listen to it. I was so upset cos I was trying to memorize Biggie Smalls verse on Mary J‘s “Real Love“.
Track was “Wanna make u Jack” and I believe it was her 1st single; it left me stunned that I forgave my bro for ‘chancing’ me. I thot to myself so Nigeria has produced an equivalent of MC Lyte & MC Trouble (RIP). Joint was on some pure New Jack Swing ish …go on give it a listen.
