Baba Fryo Hints on New Single Release
Veteran musician, Friday Igwe, popularly known as “Baba Fryo”, on Tuesday said his new single titled, “Show Love”, would be released before the end of the year.
Igwe, who disclosed this while speaking in Lagos, said he was off the music scene for 20 years until his resumption in 2021.
He said considering the series of killings in the nation, individual’s wickedness to one another, activities of bandits and terrorists, it was high time Nigerians understood the power of love.
According to him, his new single tries to enlighten Nigerians on the essence of exhibiting love to one another.
“I will be releasing my new single before the end of the year, I want to make Nigerians realise that we need to cultivate the habit of showing love to one another even with the cases of increased killings in the country.
“The situation in the country is terrible, we need to preach love more often, if the bandits and terrorists can show love, there would be no problem in the society,” he said.
Igwe said that his kind of music was referred to as Afro-reggae-beats, a fussion of Afrobeats and Reggae music.
He said he was aspiring to be like the late Fela Anikulapo-kuti and Bob Marley who were known as freedom fighters.
“I have been away from the music scene for 20 years now but I came back in 2021 with the release of a single, “Dey Your Dey”, I am trying to follow-up with another single now “Show Love”.
“Dey Your Dey” tells individuals to desist from being sycophants, parasitic or hypocritical, but ensure to present their true identity and behaviour,” he said.
Fondly remembered for his eye patch, Baba Fryo was the Denge Pose master that ruled the airwaves in the 1990s.
His song, “Dem go dey pose”, was sung with gusto by both the young and old alike.
Straight from the ghetto of Ajegunle, Lagos, Baba Fryo had the right attitude for his kind of music. (NAN)
