Pslam Twenti

Psalm Twenti
May Papa God tek yua calls wen yua wata don pass Garri,
may im name corva yu laik corva cloth for harmattan nait.
May Papa God message area angels dem from im parlour to yu,

Mek God gi yu dat thing wey dey hungry yu so, so dat all yua plans go bo si.
We go follo yu halla and jollof wen yua own come betta.
We go carry Papa God name up laik Naija flag for Octoba first.

Dem fall down yakata! But we denge, dey set laik majestic Iroko inside bush.
Papa God, save yua pickin. We kneel down dey beg, no ansa awa call wit voice message.

Asa Sings 2

By 21:55 hours it was Peace… Yepa! For the ones not yet born. Next came Jailer. The band excelled here. The grove had that kind of infectious bass line that would not have been out of place on a Dr Dre jam. It felt like a big fat juicy beat was walking slowly downstairs with attitude. You just had to stand up and dance (did I just say stand up? This was a no sitting venue, thank God for strong legs!). Jailer when down very well.
The crowd gave mad love. Sang every line..I’m in chains. You’er in chains too…
Beautiful was sang with the skills of a lyrical cardiologist. Straight to our hearts, by- passing ears and brains. The emotive subject of mothers ( on the day following Mothering Sunday) really struck a chord. Asa sings just like an Assassin.
We sang..ntori omo….ti ya ni ile oko. It was so moving.
Next song was announced as the last. No one knows tomorrow. An injection of hope. My take on this was that no matter how bad today is, it can get better tomorrow, so why get depressed about it. (This show had the pharmacological properties of Prozac).
She took a bow and left the stage. Awon boys and girls no belleful o! Few made for the door but I hung around.
The she returned and gave use ‘Jara’. First Eye Adaba, then a song by Nina Simone, before doing Natural Mystic by Bob Marley.
Then we were treated to a freestyle medley of Fire on the mountain, Jailer and ..and… ..Mo ti gba gbe sha! (I cannot remember!) Babawilly was rocking too much to remember anything after that.
Big up to the band.
Janet –Vocals, Rodi on Bass/ Jeff on drums/ Nicola (a White man who i saw him singing a Yoruba chorus!) on guitar/ Didier on key boards.
We were all on a high after the show. Will most definitely go for ‘second round’, ‘third round’ and even ‘fourth round’ when new concert dates are announced.
Did I tell you I won tickets for the show by entering a competition on Gospel tonight with Muyiwa on Premier Radio? Sky TV 968
Well , I have told you now.
Finally big up to Cobham Asuquo who is credited some of the production work on this album. Na you bico!

Asa Sings 1

Asa Sings

Just like an assassin, Asa goes for the heart.

And so, here I am waiting for the show to start. Ben Onono starts off the concert with his song Badagry Beach. The packed room at the Carling Islington Academy went through the motions. They clapped at the end of each song Ben offered, never losing sight of why we were all gathered here in north London on Monday the 12th of May. Well, we came to see Asa and see her we did.
About five minutes past nine she came on. We heard her voice singing the opening lines of 360 Degrees for a few seconds before the spectacled singer walked on stage.
Then the great wrestling match began. Sections of the audience knew every line, every single lyric, every oohh and every aahh of each song. It was reminiscent of the great wrestling match in Chinua Achebe’s novel Things Fall Apart, between Amalinze the Cat and Okonkwo. The fight that was described as the ‘fiercest since the founder of their town engaged a spirit of the wild for seven days and seven nights’.
The audience, which had under gone a metamorphosis into Amalinze, (with me as his eye brow) tried in vain to out sing the singer, but it was all futile. Like a slippery fish, she proved too hard to pin down. We all enjoyed our defeat as it soon became obvious that with Asa, Things Fall Together. She took control and with the aid of her well rehearsed band had us all eating from her hands (on her terms).
360 had that catchy hook, ‘I’ill be waiting’ initially used by Youssou N’Dour and Neneh Cherry in their 1994 smash hit- 7 Seconds, a song which sat at No 1 for 16 consecutive weeks in the French charts at the time. The whole audience would let rip every time Asa led us down that road, ‘I’ill be waiting!’
This became a pattern all night long; all of the songs had a part which everyone joined in.
Asa oozed star quality, and it was nothing to do with make up or clever lighting. She exhibited that rare quality of someone whose spirit was big enough to reach out and touch others. Soon the whole show blurred into one unique and pleasurable experience. Her next song, Subway had all singing, ‘My mama say baby be careful, if anybody tells you I love you ohh oh..’. I just cannot get that tune out of my head. And I wasn’t the only one. After the show as we trooped down to the London underground, those who had just left the show were easily identified. They hummed or sang with a spring in their step. It was like taking drugs (not that I know anything about that).
Fire on the Mountain (My favourite) was dropped next. I thought of when I stood on Kilimanjaro in all its 5,895m of glory. I became a child again, running and singing in primary school- ‘there is fire on the Mountain, run, run ,run!’ It was so liberating. I began to get that feeling of being in a group therapy session. No seats, little lights, everyone standing cosily close, too close if you ask me, as I found my hands accidentally striking the softer parts of the female anatomy as the dancing got hectic. In the end I had to lift my two hands up and jump. I digress. The song was done well.
I felt Bob Marley, Fela and Nina Simone come to life all in one go; in the vocal chords of Asa. I thought of the similar grooves on Gabrielle’s –When a Woman. It was Things Falling Together with Asa. Her songs, to borrow the words of Chief Zebrudaya, ‘penetration deep down to ludricate whiter’. Almost like the washing of the soul with that sweet detergent of music, the cleansing of debris off the brain’s memory cells with the pure flowing waters emanating from a truly gifted conduit; the ultimate brain-washing.
Then came a song about the virtues of telling the truth. E ro o da…..the song went. This song was not on the album.

Two ladies went on stage to sing with her. Prior to that, she had teased her audience rotten by asking for volunteers to join her on stage.
I got flash backs to primary school, when we all struggled with outstretched hands to tell the teacher the answer. ‘Me teacher. Me!’. We all had hands up in the air. ‘Me Asa, me!’.
I found her comic timing impeccable. She was funny with talent, with none of that verbose slap stick ‘gra gra’ that passes as comedy nowadays. She communicated well with the crowd. It was a joy to see. Her use of language and facial expressions was excellent. She didn’t just fill the stage, but filled the whole venue.
Next was Awe. The wrestling started again. As she built up to start the song (with the story of a boy and his lover), the audience could wait no longer and started having fits of premature singing (for want of a better word). ‘Awe!’

Babavroom on The Poetry Digest

Magazine to be launched in May 2008 in Nigeria by Kifayah abdulQuadri - Publisher of The Poetry Digest. Nigeria. More details to follow...

Babavroom in Wembley 3

(Trust me, this picture is really Kanu on the ball).

Was quite excited to watch Kanu in the flesh after years of television viewing. He is indeed a one off. He didn’t look or move like a world class athlete. He limped slightly as he ran with hunched shoulders. His speed looked like he might have been playing golf or something. But when the ball gets to his large feet, a miracle seemed to take place. He becomes transformed into a magical talent. Defenders all stop and stare like they are spectators. They all just watch as if hypnotised. His feet move to a different rhythm. One he hears in his soul. Kanu does not play football. He performs miracles.

First Half.

West Brom out played Portmouth completely but lacked decisiveness up front. Too many passes and not enough shooting. Sol Campbell and Slyvian Distin were outstanding in defence for Portsmouth.

Second Half

Kanu scored on the 54th minute and got substituted at 80 minutes. I read that he is 31 years old (I say no more).

It was a shame West Brom didn’t win though, as they practically did most of the running.

All that remains now is finding tickets for the finals.

Babavroom in Wembley 2

Nice drive down the M6/M1. Impressive looking Stadium.

Wonderful atmosphere. The fans sat at opposite ends of the stadium and booed each time an opponents name was mentioned on the public address system.

Was really entertaining. Even had my picture taken with the West Brom Mascot.

The pitch was real quality as was the public address system.

Babavroom in Wembley 1

Went to the new Wembley for the first time today.

Was the Semi-finals of the FA cup between West Bromwich Albion (Kanu’s former club) and Portsmouth (Kanu’s present club).

In Birmingham the big three clubs are Aston Villa, Birmingham City and West Bromwich Albion.

Invited by Godfrey, a friend from church, who drove.

Medical Article YAWA

Long post but I will explain. Wrote an article for a mag in Lagos which was deemed inadequate by the Editor. Our recent mails below. I took umbrage in his remark that article does not appear to be written by a Doctor. Perhaps he expected to see words like Endoscopic retrograde Cholangio-pancreatography. I think this is symptomatic of the Nigerian idea that Doctor should 'fire' big voluminous words to justify their degrees.
I have posted the said article lower down.
What do you think?


Dear Doc,

I got your text. Sorry I’m replying this late…so much to do and I am in Abuja for a conference.

I received your article.

I have a couple of problems with it. Firstly, I find that a lot of what is contains is readily available to anyone who can browse the web. It doesn’t read like something written by a medical doctor. While I am not saying that it should have read like a page from a medical periodical, it still doesn’t have the strength of an article by a qualified medical practitioner.

I cannot use this article as it is.

To move on, I would like you to rewrite this by picking anyone of the ideas you; sent let see how it goes with other your idea.

Just let me know what you’ve picked.



My brother, we may have to end our correspondence here o.

That was 4 hours of work. I value my time at £ 80 an hour.
You say the article does not look written by a medical Doctor- well, how many non medics know what immunisations are required in the tropics.
I could write an article that you would not understand - but with the public- communication is the key.
That is my style.

Will definitely not re write.

Thanks for communication and all the best with you mag.
Will pass on article to someone else

Dr Wilson Orhiunu


Five things to do and not to do in 2008 to improve your health
Dr Wilson Orhiunu
Dr Wilson Orhiunu is a writer and General Practitioner in Birmingham UK and also Academy and reserve team Doctor with Birmingham City Football Club.

Five things to do.
Physical activity lasting 20 minutes three to four times a week is will produce health benefits. The type of exercise engaged in will be a factor of experience, age, general health and perhaps socio-economic factors.
Walking however is one of the most cost effective ways of acquiring fitness. Training is not required and all that is required is a good pair of trainers. As fitness improves more strenuous forms of exercise could be engaged in. Membership of a well- equipped gym is beneficial.
Benefits of exercise
Exercise reduces the chances of death in previously healthy people and in those with heart disease and diabetes
Exercise also reduces the chance of developing various illnesses such as Obesity, Diabetes, Hypertension, Strokes, Cancer and Depression.
Psychological benefits also abound. There is an improvement in self esteem associated with fitness. The improved strength, power, agility and endurance provides a self -confidence that impacts positively on mental well being.
2. Watch your caloric intake
Eating in moderation with reduce the chances of developing Obesity and its complications such as heart disease, diabetes, lethargy, low self esteem and joint problems.

3. Have a positive mental attitude
A positive attitude to life will reduce stress. Thought processes in times of stress are usually of a poor quality and will hamper problem solving.
Tips for improving our attitude include
- Having ‘complaining fasts’- go 2 weeks without complaining about anything . If things need changing, do so but don’t complain.
- Laugh daily
- Avoid those who also complain or never make you laugh.
- Be content.
4. Relax
Sleep daily. 7 to 8 hours should be adequate for most adults but individual requirements vary. A good night will boast your immune system and improve both concentration and cognition. Tired people usually don’t look or feel their best (hence the term beauty sleep), so get more sleep and look great.
Apart from sleep, other ways of relaxing could be through listening to music, physical intimacy loved ones, having a massage or watching comedy or drama programmes.

5. Have a yearly medical check up
Depending on where you live and where you intend to visit, make sure you are up to date with your immunisations. Discuss with your Doctor about a Typhoid, Meningitis, Tetanus, and Hepatitis vaccine. Make sure you had childhood immunisations- Diptheria, Pertusis and Polio and the Measles , Mumps and Rubella vaccines.
As part of a health check up your Doctor will usually check your blood pressure, weight and height (to estimate your BMI; Body mass Index) and run a few laboratory tests such a Full blood count for anaemia, liver and kidney functions and a glucose level to exclude diabetes. Men above 50 years of age may require a PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) to screen for Prostate Cancer. Cardiac screening will include an ECG and Echocardiography were indicated

Five things not to do

Stopping smoking prolongs your life. In 24 hours the body is rid of the poisonous Carbon monoxide gas obtained from cigarette smoke and in 1 and 10 years the risks of heart attacks and lung cancer are halved respectively

Unprotected sex
HIV, Hepatitis B and other sexually transmitted infections are be prevented by use of a condom or abstinence

Drive above the speed limits – Speed kills. Always have your seat belt on and never drive after a drink of alcohol.
Take drugs or excessive alcohol – Recreational drugs such as Marijuana, Cocaine, Heroin are harmful to the body and mind. Excessive alcohol ( above 21 units and 14 units a week for men and women respectively) is also harmful.
Engage in self sabotage
Avoid activities that damage your body or mind. Doing all things in moderation is a good rule

Had interview on Wazobia 95.1 FM . A Cool FM initiative aiming to develop indigenous programmes promoting Nigerian culture. Met Mr Ibrahim Abubakar (Head of Programmes ; Cool FM) in his office for a brief chat (joined by Emem who arranged interview) before being introduced to the delightful Matse Uwatse- a presenter quite good at speaking Pidgin English. On getting to the studio I met Jumoke, also a presenter, and we were soon on air. Spoke in pidgin throughout and had a few callers ring in to say they enjoyed my pidgin verses. Wazobia 95.1 play only Naija music

17-2-08. 10.30am
House on the Rock morning service at Muson centre. Chai! I late. Got the CD of service though.
After church went to Tasties and then to Terra Kulture to meet with Laspapi- Wole Oguntokun; the Olorogun of Drama and Theatre. Watched a play- Angel written by Dr Ahmed Yerima and directed by Wole. Not watched a play in ages and I needed to adjust. Soon got into the flow. Mai people, Nepa no disappoint. During a sensitive scene in which a widow was conversing with the Ghost of her dead husband, Nepa take light. Silence and darkness followed. When the generator came on , the crying and acting resumed. I say Naija na tough place!
After play walked around Terra Kulture. Was nice to view their bookshop and art exhibitions.

18-2-08. 8am.
Ahhhh!!!!! Power surge. My laptop computer and mobile phone fuses don blow o! Who I go sue?

Babawilly in Lagos 3

7pm. Left for Eko Hotel to attend Silverbird’s an audience with P-squared, sponsored by Cell-tell. Good show. D Banj, Wande Cole and some others dey perform. Some sang and some inflicted vicious decibels on us. The bouncers at the door eh! See muscles. I get ticket but I still fear to pass door. As I enter dem hand me toothbrush and Close up toothpaste. Chai! Abi mai mouth dey smell? I ask o. Dem say na dem be co-sponsor so dem must give everybody product. Mai mind settle. Virgin cola sef sponsor but their own na to line fine babes with tiny red shorts dey waka up and down dey give person Virgin Cola and Virgin Orange. Wetin concern hot pants and minerals? Remain small na Virgin condoms dem for dey give out.
Anyway, MCs for night were Wild child (you again!) and Koffi. They did well.
P-square come enter. Mai people see dance. Omo, na value for money (for those wey pay enta).
See craze. Four Lepa babes wey follow dem dance eh, dem get nuclear reactor for dem waist. Ah ah. Na radio active shaking dem do oh. I say make every woman hold im man tight for dis Lagos oh!
Soon audience members posed questions to Paul and Peter (P –squared). But which kain name be that? No be nursery rhyme of two birds sitting on the wall be dat?
Some of the more interesting questions-
Why pack a Hummer in-front of a rented apartment?
Answer- ‘If it was rented will I be knocking down walls to build a studio. Would I be digging a swimming pool in the back? The house cost 51 million Naira. Our lastest CD sold one million copies in six days’.
I am 8 months pregnant. Would you attend my child’s first birthday?
Answer – ‘Yes’.
Me I fear o. Pregnant woman come rock with us. I no dey duty o!
How do I appear on your next video?
Answer- ‘Come to the back and leave your number with our manager’. Shame no dey o. Remain small sef, me for go back stage and hand over mai number make I go pose for video.
When will you get married?

Answer- Not yet.
Can you two sit on me?

Answer- ‘Yes’. Na so the girl waka on stage them sit on am dey sing. Etc etc etc.

Best song for me was temptation. With its catchy tune- Pom pom pom- pom pom/ pom pom/ pom pom. This na temptation, with a little confusion..
Sounds like the defence of a law maker arrested by EFCC when quizzed on why he stole so much government funds.
In the end we had to leave. Ah, lets not forget. We were told to feel under our seats. Omo, dem sellotape New P-squared CD as gift. Not for everyone though. You sabi as some people dey get bad luck. God forbid.
Moral of the story - next time in a show in Nigeria, go early and check under all the seats!
