Ugabi, Waziri; EDHA members- elect whose father’s are notable musician in Edo north


As the new set of members of the Edo state House of Assembly gear up to resume full legislative work, clutching, as it were, their Certificate of Returns issued by the INEC, eyes will be on some of them who concidentally shared similar background.

The Edo North senatorial district presents a riveting scenario. Two of the members-elect from the district, given their respective pedigrees, will be the focus of attention.

The duo of Hon. Ahmed Waziri and Kingsley Ugabi of All Progressive Congress, APC, share a common heritage. Whilst Hon. Waziri won the election to represent Etsako Central at the state Assembly, Hon. Ugabi will be doing the same thing for Etsako East.

Also, both are staging a comeback having been previously elected four years ago but found it extremely difficult to perform their legislative duties as a result of the political imbroglio caused by the executive arm. This time, they will wish nothing of such repeats itself

One of the interesting scenarios that have raised the bar and drawn some attention to the duo is the fact that they are the sons of two of the most popular and prominent Edo North musicians who are also political leaders of the party.

Hon. Ahmed Waziri is the son of the Oyoyo exponent, Alhaji Waziri Oshomah, from the Ekperi clan in Etsako Central.

At the height of his musical popularity, fans dubbed Oshomah the Oyoyo king based on the exhilarating rendition, musical defenses, and delivery. His music derived its roots from the traditional folklore spiced with some modern glimmers to give it a global reach. The Oshomah music genre was a pure delight to party goers and also served as the capper in any social event.

Hon. Kingsley Ugabi, from Agenebode, Etsako East, on the other hand, is the son of another popular Edo North musician, Vincent Ugabi from Agenebode, Etsako East LGA.

Ugabi shared musical fame with the Oyoyo king, Alhaji Oshomah since both men were contemporaries and also engaged in the same genre of music

Ugabi music is packed with a lot of native tales and proverb which has becomes a gospel amongst the weppa wannos across the world.

Both lawmakers must up their ante to consolidate their heritage. So much rests on their shoulder.

A lot of people will be watching keenly to see if they will either live up to expectations . At stake is the good name their fathers built.
