#THROWBACK DON’T ASK ME BY MR HYGRADES – SELEBOBO’S DAD
About two weeks ago, I had a chat with Triple MG singer and producer, Selebobo and he took me on a journey through his career and how he got to where is today. He also opened up on a few things, including his life in the village, his trip to Lagos and his family background.
It was after about 10 minutes into our meeting that I realized that Selebobo is someone you may want to call one of Nigeria and Africa’s best kept secret. He is multi-talented and the fact that his father was and still is a veteran artiste explains where the young man garnered his skills from.
Selebobo can sing, write, produce, dance, draw, paint, graphically animate and so on. He may not have reached the A-list yet, but I can tell you that this guy will go places. You need to meet him to understand. Yet, he says his father is even more gifted.
Today, I had to dig into the crates to reveal one of Goddy Oku – Selebobo’s father’s songs. According to Selebobo, his father had worked with a good number of veteran musicians, some of whom the new generation music fans may not know. He is also a good producer and instrumentalist.
You may not find so much about Goody Oku, also known as Mr. Hygrades on the internet, but you will find a handful of his songs and songs that he produced.
