Remembering Christy Essien-Igbokwe: Top Five Songs

Nigeria’s Christy Essien-Igbokwe was a blessing to Nigerians in the 70s and 80s. The artist is responsible for hit songs such as Ife that made the ancient city of Ibadan a fun place, the epic Seun Rere and Akwa Ibom’s unofficial anthem Akwa Ibom Mmi. Such was her impact across the country that whatever language she used to communicate her message evoked emotion and reflection.

Today would have marked her 58th birthday.

In remembrance of the great artist, here are some of her hit songs:

Seun Rere

Teta Nu Na Ula

You Can’t Change A Man
