Buhari rejoiced with the internationally renowned artiste, who is the first Nigerian to be nominated for a Grammy in the 80s, playing a significant role in the huge success of the country’s music industry, with influence across genres, including Hollywood, where his songs were featured in many movies.

This was disclosed in a statement by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President.

As the talented guitarist turns 76, Buhari extolled the gifted songwriter, producer and visiting professor of music at the Obafemi Awolowo University in Ile-Ife, for taking Nigerian beats to the world, exporting the rich culture and placing instruments like the “talking drum’’ on the global spotlight for research and adaption.

The President believes the recognitions and awards received by the multi-talented entertainer over the years, including the national award, MFR, are well deserved.

Buhari, however, prayed for his good health, strength and grace of more creativity.
