I don’t know why, but I’ve been listening to this for almost all of today.

    I’m glad I made your day week!

    Ha ha, me too. It’d been almost six years since I heard it last.

    I always miss home, but then, don’t you?

    Who knows? It just might be one — I found my friend listening to it too!

    …Even Nigerian shows from the ’80s.

    Been a while since I did too!

    NTA NTA. The old NTA is gone isn’t it? πŸ™

    Mad Hatter
    The bug seems to be real.

    I just might keep at you until you start blogging. When’re we starting?

    Yeah. Now we get Nigerian artistes trying to sound [and look] American…

    I was surprised as well. I mean, here is a song I thought was a tribute to Africa and I suddenly discover it’s a tribute to African beer! πŸ˜†

    I can’t remember any video — I think I listened to it only on the radio.

    I’m well oh, Diamond. Et toi?

    Yeah, it’s a classic. Won any Yanni converts for me yet?
