Christy Essien-Igbokwe – R.I.P (1960-2011)

I have no problem with admitting that I had never heard of Christy Essien-Igbokwe until today. The reason that I came across her, however, is not a very positive one.

It seems that she passed away this week leaving a back-catalogue of around 10 LP’s. The general consesus seems to be that the track she will be rememembered for is ‘Seun Rere’, which you can hear below. I am sure you will agree that on the basis of this tune alone, she should be remembered properly and will be sorely missed…

And so now to try and find some of that back-catalogue. Thanks to the mighty Comb & Razor for the heads up.
