How Music Legend Ebenezer Obey Plans To Celebrate 75th Birthday
Chief Commander Ebenezer Obey is a living legend. His artistry has not lost all its original brightness, nor does it appear less than the genius of his major rival and friend in youth, King Sunny Ade, KSA. Obey, like KSA, radiates inexplicable talent even in his twilight. This is why the glory of his genius and musical talent may never obscure. It’s brilliance illumines the world of Nigerian music as the north star lightens the path of sea weary mariners.

There is no gainsaying Commander Obey, like KSA, is perhaps one of the most revered
musical icons in the country. Decades after their release, his evergreen songs continue to thrill the hearts and feet of mesmerized listeners held spellbound by the veteran music maestro’s

captivating performances. And having lived well beyond the threescore and ten years cutoff mark for a long life, Chief Ebenezer Obey feels it is time to secure his legacy by giving back to the community. Hence his 75th birthday celebrations this year will be a special affair.

Although he was born on April 3, Chief Ebenezer’s birthday festivities will begin on March 23, 2017 to coincide with the birthday of his late beloved wife Evangelist Juliana Olaide Obey-Fabiyi. On that day a new police post built in his home town of Idogo will be commissioned. Idogo is in Yewa South Local Government Area of Ogun State. Apart from the police post, other activities include the launch of the Ebenezer Obey Music Foundation which has the aim of helping talented local artistes to find their feet in the music industry. A thanksgiving service will take place on April 3rd in Abeokuta, Ogun State.
