Sadiq Daba goes down the memory lane

Inasmuch as it is known that Sadiq Daba is a guru when it comes to portraying characters on the television and Yinka Davies is a talented sonorous songstress, not many know that they are very good dancers.

The pair showed their dance moves in the Unleash the 80s party and they took a walk down memory lane.

The veteran actor, Sadiq Daba, said that attending the party reminded him of what good music sounds like. “The whole theme of this party speaks for itself, Unleash the 80s. It is about a group of young people who came together to take a walk back in time musically and I think it is nice. Listening to these songs brings back good old memories and they are nice in comparison to what is being played today.

Music of those days made a lot of sense, it told stories and had melodies that would make you want to listen to them repeatedly. Unlike the music of nowadays that makes no sense to me, if you listen to one, it is as good as listening to everything. What the organisers of this event are doing is to take a walk down memory lane and relive the good old days. The music they play nowadays is absolutely very strange to my ears,” he said.

For the sonorous singer, Yinka Davies, songs from the 80s helped shape her life. “Attending this party takes me down memory lane because the songs being played are the songs I listened to as a child.  It has taken me back to my teenage days and all the fun I had when I was a child. It brings back memories from my school; especially when I was a part of the literary and debating society, drama, and everything. These are the music we heard on the streets while we were going to and fro my schools. In a way, most of these old school songs helped me become the singer I am today,” she said.

Speaking about the event, one of the organisers, Bose Sanusi said, “Music and society have always been intimately related. Music is a powerful tool used to facilitate communication which goes beyond words, enables meanings to be shared, and promotes the development and maintenance of individual, group, cultural and national identities. We all know that an old song has the power to trigger vivid memories that could transport us back in time.”
