My mother Christiana Asmau Abah (nee Maha) woke me up in my teens to listen to Christy Essien Igbokwe's "Seun Rere," whenever the video was played on television in Sokoto State because she considered it good music for children.
Plato advised that good music should feed the soul but Nigerian music is about rhythm and dance.

Music enables a people to understand their higher purpose, to love self and humanity, to make man full and not empty.
Music should wake people up from lassitude; good music makes listeners close their eyes when they listen to the messages in-built for it is enjoyable and noble.
