VIDEO: Fuji icon Ayinla Kollington lays claim to Portable's Zazoo
Nigerian Fuji maestro, General Kollington Ayinla, has laid claim to the song 'Zazoo,' claiming it was first released by him in 1981.
Kollington Ayinla expressed shock over the content of songs circulating among youths in recent times, saying he popularised it, not street-hop singer, Portable, who merely tweaked it to 'Zazoo Zeh.'
Ayinla stated that despite the poor content being produced by musicians today, they still get massive acceptance from music lovers.
He added that songs like Portable's version of ‘Zazoo’ ought not to be played on the radio or on TV, saying the contents are not acceptable.
Continuing, he pointed out that Portable’s Zazoo is an adaptation of his 1981 classic song ‘ Zaa Zazu’ saying that the dimension and lyrics were very different.
Ayinla urged musicians to create music that will have a positive effect on society.
“Musicians don’t care about the lyrics of their music anymore and the lessons that people ought to learn from their songs. In lyrics like Ori e o Foka sibe, someone called himself Were Olorin (referring to Portable).
He said, "Were Adugbo wo ilu o’ meaning the mad man of the streets has come o. And unfortunately, people are dancing to it. Are they improving the community or they are adding to the problems?”
