Elders’ Forum to celebrate Victor Olaiya

The Elders Forum will, on Sunday, March 26, 2017 celebrate veteran highlife musician Dr. Victor Abimbola Olaiya (OON).

The event, jointly organised by O’jez Entertainment Group and Evergreen Musical Company Limited (EMCL), is a monthly event that aimed at celebrating life-time achievers who have distinguished themselves in their chosen careers.

Fondly referred to as the ‘Evil Genius of Highlife Music’, Olaiya has contributed to the growth and promotion of highlife music in Nigeria and across the world.

The event will also honour Kaiyero Rotibi (aka Tyro), a virtuoso guitarist who is the oldest and longest serving member of the Dr. Victor Olaiya’s band, having been with him since 1957.

It would be recalled that the February edition of the Elders’ Forum treated guests to classic tunes from African and Nigerian artistes in the persons of Miatta Fahnbulleh of Liberia and Pa Jimi Solanke, who were actually the special guests at the event, as well as Shina Bakare and Beautiful Nubia among others.
