DJ Cuppy Feat. Tunji Oyelana – I Love My Country

Did you know that Nobel prize winner Wole Soyinka released socio-political critique songs?

The so-called “self-made and hard-working” DJ Cuppy released this song for her debut single in 2013.

This is in fact a remix of “Etike Revo Wetin” composed by Soyinka and Tunji Oyelana, side B on the sarcastic Unlimited Liability Company LP, released in 1983 by Soyinka’s production company, Ewuro Productions.
