 Buhari Mourns Ace Music Producer, Instrumentalist, Pa Chris Ajilo


President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday sympathized with the entertainment industry, particularly musicians and producers, over the passing of renowned music producer, instrumentalist and instructor, Pa Chris Ajilo, who was bandleader of the National Orchestra for Nigeria’s independence in 1960.

The special adviser to the President,(Media & Publicity), Femi Adesina in a condolence message said Buhari commiserated with family, friends and professional colleagues of the highly celebrated artiste, whose talent completely altered the musical industry in Nigeria, giving it more depth, meaning and appeal, as he inspired a genre that was accepted across class, age and creed.

The statement said: “As remains of the multi-talented instrumentalist go to rest on April 16, 2021, the President believes the legacies of discipline, focus and professionalism that Pa Ajilo brought into the industry, after studying music for many years in England, will be remembered by generations.

“Buhari prays that the music teacher will find eternal rest with God, while the many musicians and producers he mentored will carry on with his vision.”
