The Chronicle of a Buttie-pako Chic
I am sitting in this studio that is about to become the next big place for recording in Nigeria and listening to a music which is meant to be a sample song from an upcoming artist, mind if I tell you that this young act sounds like anything but an “upcoming artist”.

A few weeks ago I lost a great man and that broke me. My heart was broken because his death wasn’t natural, my heart was broken because the Nigerian government especially Lagos state and the ministry of environment or whoever it is that handles flood and drainages was at fault, my heart was broken because he was a father to many, a friend to a lot, a brother to all and confidant to us.
Last week my boss' brother got arrested by VIO on the ground that his license was issued in Ibadan and not Lagos state. We thought it was a joke until his car got tolled… no jokes they seized the car and my boss’ brother decided to stand his ground speaking all sorts of English and quoting all known and unknown laws…..loro kekere sha we went to Alausa after about 6hours to go and bail the car with serious cash.
My friend who by the way is a very strong man sent me a message in the middle of the night saying his mum was at the emergency ward. My strong friend and by strong I mean really strong both physically and emotionally. He is a typical case of what the street would call *awon ti aya won ti ki* the guy can do and undo. In my mind the guy has like 10 livers and here he was in the middle of the night at the emergency ward crying profusely like a baby over his mother who was at the brink of death.
Sheva real name Folarin Ayeni or FolaSheva to some, got into music at an early age. Beginning with the piano, he began covering popular songs (you can find them all over Youtube), which has brought him a good following.
With that in mind, he has now decided to take his music career further by becoming a recording artiste under the new indie label, The Mävrik Music.
The journey of a thousand miles they say starts with one step. Well our journey towards the AFCON cup was a journey of 19 years with so many disappointment, heartbreak, loss of interest in the team and then we started getting angry, we became abusive towards the team we didn’t even see one ray of hope in the team.
