"This picture was taken in 1998. My first tour with the @egypt80band. I used to cover just my dads songs then and that when I knew the Nigerian media had serious issues. All they did then was compare me A 15 year old ( doing the necessary work of preserving a musical institution) to my father. I wonder what they were doing at 15. That bastard Charles Okogene was their chairman and if I still catch am ehn! �� and I am sorry to say the level of reporting both entertainment and politics is still crass and below par! All of them bar none!!"
