The founder of Shuga band, Nigeria’s number one music band, Akinloye Tofowomo has released a tribute song in honour of the late pillar of sport and business mogul, Chief Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola (MKO), the presumed winner of the presidential elections of June 12, 1993.
Akin Shuga, as he is fondly called, is an admirer of the late philanthropist and encountered the late publisher of the defunct Concord Newspapers several times while he was alive, his admiration, relationship and exceptional human qualities inspired him to go to the studio and record a song which many are already touting to be a classic.
Shuga Band consists of young and talented musicians who see music more as a passion than a trade. They bridge the gap between the young and the old at parties, rendering legendary old school tunes and blending them with African flavours to everyone’s satisfaction. Their list of highly influential clients and corporate bodies is endless.
Shuga band has always been and remains the toast of the high and mighty in Africa as they have taken their trade to several countries including America, Asia and the United Arab Emirates to mention quite a few.
Akinloye Tofowomo is also the founder and president of Shuga Limb Foundation and a graduate of political science from the Lagos State University.
