Supreme women, then titled “Mothers of a Nation” was launched at the National Arts Theatre in Nov.1992. The record was so named because of the role of the then First lady, Dr.Mrs Maryam Babangida of blessed memory, who not only activated the dormamt office of the first lady but also established the Women Development Centres ,aside other notable achievements.
Songs in the album produced by Jide Omidiran of Blackwell Entertainment were rendered by the then very popular upcoming artistes, Yinka Davies , Bola Abimbola, Mciver and other equally talented artistes. These songs are now being presented to the African Society after ,twenty eight(28) years to the glory of God and to the benefit of this generation and generations yet unborn.
The relevance of the songs , particularly to the high success rate of women achievers especially in areas hitherto dominated by men, in the last twenty eight years and across all spheres of life ,spurred the composer of the songs, Mrs Ajoke Erogbogbo -Gbeleyi, (a retired Director from the L/S Civil Service & the Founder of Focused Girls Moral Regeneration Support Initiative ) to bring the songs back to the music scene in order to establish the forthrightness, doggedness and unusual strength of the African woman. She also appreciates the older ones for their inexhaustible roles and the encouragement given to the younger ones to not only emulate them but also to achieve greater heights.
It is hoped that the Society at large would appreciate and respect the women folk more as they listen to the songs.
The songs as listed below are solely on Mothers, Women & Girls:
- Supreme Women
- Mothers of a Nation
- Iyalolu toju mi
- Uwana Sanu ki da iki
- Ezigbo Nnem.
