  17. That man played secular music for the world and touched many. He used same instruments to play for Jesus the Christ. That's repentance and transformation in Christ " A great change". May his soul rest in peace.














    That brother played secular music and was able to touch many. He used the same instruments to play for Jesus The Christ in his latter years till his death. That's repentance and tranformation in Christ. "A Great Change" I thank the Lord for his life. May his soul rest in perfect peace.

    I can always pay my tributes, though belated. This man Ozzidi brought me close to guitar synchronized music with his "Friends" in the 70s. I can still recall then at No 15 Ulasi Road Aba where a certain tailor played it without ceasing. It rooted the original Igbo folklore which was my brought up favorite

    Very difficult to forget, his "No More War" and "Tire ni Oluwa" became my childhood anthem as a primary & later, post primary pupil in the early '80s.

    Rest in the Lord, Sunny.
