Recall who lagbaja is ? Well... the name is a stage name adopted by a masked Nigeria's veteran afrobeat master, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist in person of Bisade, before he embarked on his music career in the early 90s. The name "Lágbájá" is a famous Yoruba terminology which refers to something or someone anonymous. Since he's a masked anonymous songstar before he's identity was revealed by a veteran Nollywood actor and film-maker; Aremu Afolayan.
The icon has no doubt gained a lot of attention and win people over from far and wide over the years he took to and off stage to perform. This fact is evident in the veteran's 60th birthday. The number of birthday wishes he got was way too many, well wishes and gifts pouring out from different corners not leaving Former Nigerian vice-president and 2019’s PDP presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar behind. The political Colossus also celebrated the music veteran in a post shared on his official Twitter page.
Alhaji Atiku Abubakar's birthday message to the "Konko below" crooner reads:
“60th birthday greetings to ‘omo baba muko muko’, the masked one who was Covid19-proof long before this season. I wish you many more years in strength and good health.” Funny how he linked the season to the legend's birthday by virtue of the mask he wears when performing.
Lágbájá, who was often compared to Afrobeat pioneer; Fela Kuti was born in 1960, in Lagos and have been known for dropping hit tracks such as “konko below, Never Far Away, Gra Gra” and many others. Those that have seen him on stage will testify that he sure is one talented and incredible artiste among his contemporary making the comparison between Fela Kuti and the legendary "Lágbájá" something of interest to many. Since both of them has a large and devoted fan base to support them respectively.
