music style

2010 '''Tunde Nightingale''', a.k.a., "Western" was a native of Ibadan, the largest city in both Nigeria and Africa. An incredible guitarist with a sonorous voice to boot, he was best known for his unique Jùjú music style, following in the tradition of Tunde King. Born in Ibadan in the late-1940s, his contemporaries included Ayinde Bakare, I. K. Dairo and Dele Ojo. Nightingale was credited with the Owambe system, which was popular among Lagos socialites, who eagerly sponsored him on a tour abroad. When he returned, he signed with the TYC label and recorded over 40 albums in his career. Modern stars like King Sunny Ade and Queen Ayo Balogun continue to be influenced by his style. Apart from the fact that he "sounded," literally, like the proverbial singing bird, "Nightingale," he also kept a live Nightingale bird in his home.

In 1960, during the celebration of Nigeria's independence, the band was called on to play at a party hosted by a popular Ibadan based magistrate. With a lot of prominent Yoruba (Yoruba people) patrons at the venue, I.K. Dairo showcased his style of Juju music and earned attention and admiration from other Yoruba patrons present, many of whom later invited him to gigs during cultural celebrations or just lavish parties. In the early 1960s, he changed the band's name to Blue Spots and he also won a competition televised in Western Nigeria (Western Region, Nigeria) to showcase the various talents in Juju music. During the period, he was able to form his own record label in collaboration with Haruna Ishola and achieved critical and popular acclaim and fame.
