Tech giants, Google on Wednesday created a doodle to celebrate the 74th posthumous birthday of one of Nigeria’s finest highlife musicians, Oliver De Coque.
Oliver De Coque whose real name is Oliver Sunday was largely regarded as the “Highlife King of Africa” and one of the continent’s most revered recording artists.
He died on June 20, 2008, at the age of 66.
His “Ogene” brand of highlife music blended modern highlife and traditional Igbo music, producing hits such as “Biri Ka Mbiri,” “Ana Enwe”, and “Nnukwu Mmawu” among others.
Due to his musical prowess, the University of New Orleans awarded him an honourary doctorate in music in 1994.
