Sir Victor Uwaifo’s Cute Look @ 19 (PHOTO)

Cool, calm and calculating, not many Nigerian showbiz buff
can easily tell if the above teenage photograph was that of the great music
legend – Victor Uwaifo or not. But in truth, it was. It was one of his
favourite pictures taken during a training session at St Gregory’s
College, Obalende in 1960 when he was just 19


The name ‘Sir Victor Uwaifo’ always ring a bell in the ears
of high-life music lovers. He wasn’t just a musician, he connotes so many other
things ranging from writer, sculptor to musical instrument instructor.
Born in 1941 at the ancient city of Benin, Edo State, Uwaifo
was famous for his ‘Joromi’ music comprising great tracks like “Mami Water”
(mermaid) and “Guitar Boy” which became major hits in 1996.

Even though Wizkid has been credited with the lyric, ‘20 men
shall fall that day if you cross my lane,’ it was actually Uwaifo who
originally made use of that line in one of his hit tracks.
