Segun Adewale And His Superstars International

Profile:
Segun Adewale born into a royal family in 1955 in Oshogbo, Nigeria, was introduced to music at an early age through his father's amateur guitar-playing. His father objected to a career in music for his son and so Adewale left his hometown for Lagos where he became an apprentice musician with Chief S.L. Atolagbe and his Holy Rainbow. Soon Adewale hooked up with the father of Juju music, I.K. Dairo who gave him encouragement and taught him about arranging and composing.

In 1977 Adewale, along with his good friend Sir Shina Peters, formed a new group Shina Adwale and the Superstars International. In the three years the band lasted they issued nine recordings. In 1980 Adewale and Peters split up the group and went on to form their own separate groups. By 1984 Adewale has refined his sound into something he dubbed "Yo Pop", which he described as a blend of funk, jazz, juju, reggae, and Afro-beat
