TEE MAC ISELI MOURNS HIGHLIFE MAESTRO, ORLANDO JULIUS WHO DIED AT MIDNIGHT

ENTERTAINMENT - Posted on: 15th Apr. 2022 at 12:47PM
Orlando Julius Aremu Olusanya Ekemode, known professionally known as Orlando Julius or Orlando Julius Ekemode, a Nigerian saxophonist, singer, bandleader, and songwriter, the originator of afrobeat music, joined his ancestors last night.

I got a phone call from his lovely wife Latoya early morning that he peacefully slept off last night. He had health problems in the last year but his passing into the next dimension comes unexpected.

Orlando was with Mango Dibango the most successful Saxophone player of Africa. He performed and wrote even for James Brown. When you check google you will see the amount of High Life and Afrobeat Albums he recorded.

Nigeria has lost a giant. A quiet superstar who did not need and wanted the publicity most young artists crave.

May he continue to play his Saxophone in the next dimension with all his colleagues who are there to receive him.
