BLACK MOSES

As a youngster in Gidi (Lagos) back in the 70’s, Isaac Hayes ruled the airwaves of my household alongside James Brown, Fela Kuti and King Sunny Ade. His powerful baritone, bald dome and impossing figure, created quite a an impression on my young ears, eyes and mind.

The unending organ and guitar and meltdown at the end of ‘Do Your Thing’ was to me, the pinnacle sermonizing in Soul!!!
Ike would be missed dearly and the legacy of work he’s left behind would inspire many others in years to come.
