You cannot be a Nigerian who lived through the 80s and not know Evi Edna Ogholi. She sang the all-time favourite birthday song “Happy Birthday”. She was known as the “Queen of Nigerian Reggae”. She recorded her first album in 1989, a light style of reggae with vocals in her native Isoko.
She established herself all over West Africa and received sponsorship from Pepsi for a Nigerian National Tour. Evi Edna also sang songs like Look Before You Cross, which taught many teenagers the basics of road safety and the principles of road-crossing when it was released.
Ebi Edna currently lives in Paris and has since been off our radar. Today we pay a tribute to a music legend with a throw back to one of her most popular songs.
