About the Artist

The incandescent young saxophonist Kola Ogunkoya offers a euphonious smorgasbord of world musical favorites. The enchantingly mysterious sound of the wind instrument, saxophone, clears the way for dundun, the talking drum, which in turn opens the way for the rattling piano, congas, maracas, and omele, which eventually introduce the overpowering, but melodious, vocal of Kola Ogunkoya himself. Popularly known as Gbedumaster, Kola Ogunkoya is a multi-instrumentalist who has a solid background in Afro Jazz, Afro Pop, Afro Beat, and World Beat; with this album, he combines all the genres. Born on August 20, 1967 in Owerri, Imo State, Nigeria, the son of an itinerary police officer, Kola developed an early interest in musical instruments by watching a police march band play across the barracks. In 1986, Kola received tutelages in saxophone, brass horn, and trumpet. Then from 1986 to 1987 he secured a long-term gig with the legendary Dr. Victor A. Olaiya and his All Stars Band. The band played (highlife) regularly at the popular Stadium Hotel in Surulere, Lagos; he became a professional musician, freelancing with superstars like Handsome Wale Abiodun (tenor guitar), Dayo Kujore (keyboard), and Saura Alhaji (also keyboard). In 1987 Kola elected to attend the prestigious Ibadan Polytechnic to sharpen his technical skills. In 1988 Kola recorded his first LP, "Na Je Je;" King Sunny Ade, the Juju maestro gave Kola #20,000 (Twenty thousand naira) to complete the project. In 1995, Kola released the video and, the record topped the Nigeria’s music charts for one year. In 1996, having become a household name, Kola took part in the renowned Benson & Hedges’ annual Golden Tone Concert in the company of music giants like King Sunny Ade, Wasiu Ayinde, Ras Kimono, Sanni Danindo, and Bright Chimeze. In the summer of 1996, Kola traveled briefly to both New York and Chicago in the United States of America; he applied to the Chicago Jazz Festival in Illinois! , African World Festival in Detroit, Michigan, and Lafayette Reggae Festival in Louisiana before he returned to Nigeria. The following year, in 1997, Kola returned to America to attend the festivals alongside internationally acclaimed musicians like Mighty Sparrow – the Calypso king, Benny Man – the Reggae crooner, and others. In recognition of his outstanding musicality, the American World Music Award voted Kola the Best African Entertainer of the Year.
