As a Yoruba person particularly those who grew up lately in Yoruba South Western Nigeria and are of present age – waxing old classic songs of legends like Chief Ebenezer Obey can be quite nostalgic and can serve as good listening time to see through the history of many great or popular Nigerians who were once movers and shakers of social scenes. It also reminds one that time is everything in life.
Well, If you have listened well to Obey many songs, you must have gotten yourself acquainted to many famous names like Bode Oshinusi ni’jebu Ode, Yinka Rhodes nle Barrister Lawyer, Victor Odofin Bello “Olola” and many more. With curiosity, I did my little findings about Chief Bode Oshinusi sometimes ago and I feel it will help others too.
So, briefly, if you always wonder by asking that who is this “Bode Oshinusi sef?” Well this little biography should help.

He was an highly successful businessman and a powerful Lagos socialite in 70’s and 80’s that enjoyed the Patronage of many Musicians, like King Sunny Ade, Obey etc. The best of his name is waxed in a Masterpiece lines Chief Obey’s Board Members track.
Prince Bode until his death was the Chairman, Royal Travels Agency, located in Yaba, Lagos State, Nigeria.
