Chief Stephen Osita Osadebe (1936-2007)

I was just in the middle of composing an entry on highlife when I was informed that Chief Stephen Osita Osadebe had died.

If you've not heard of him, he's pretty much been one of the cornerstones of Igbo highlife of the past fortysome years. A party is not a party until his evergreen classic "Osondi Owendi" has been played a couple of times.

Rest in peace.
