Rest in peace Sonny Okosuns

This goes out to a very great Nigerian musician Sonny Okosuns who died in the US at the weekend. He was aged 61 years. He died from colon cancer. Okosuns music blessed me as a young chap growing up in the 80s and he was a great voice that rose up against Apartheid in South Africa. He performed during Nelson Mandela's inauguration as President of South Africa in 1996, it was a result of the recognition of his immense work for that nation. He was popularly called Ozzidi King

Rest in peace compatriot. We shall never forget you.
