about

Waziri wrote this song as a dedication to an important member of his community (his name is in the title, in case you missed that part). With a rolling hook on his keyboard, he strikes his signature balance of Etsako/Afemai folk styles with pan-Nigerian highlife and pop to create a sublime vehicle for his Islamic philosophy—and to compare Alhaji Inu Umoru’s strength to that of an elephant:

“People who are truthful and honest in life are better than those who embezzle wealth for themselves. No animal in the jungle can ever overrun the strength of an elephant.”
