The perm and red lipstick wearing Oby Onyioha represented the flux of female singers leading the charge into the 80s after witnessing the 1-20years of Nigeria’s independence having very little female representation in music.
Armed with her toothy smile, the baby voiced pop vocalist was the first artist to sign to Time Communication Limited.
Oby was born & brought up in Aba, Abia (then Imo) and is the daughter of His Holiness Ogbaja (Prophet) Kama Onu Kama Onyioha, Head of the Godian Religion. Her biggest hit is “I Want To Feel Your Love” from her 1 and only album with the same title in 1981 which was written and produced by Lemmy Jackson for Time. The song was so big in Europe that recently in an auction on Ebay, her vinyl went for $700.
Presumed to have married and living in the UK, not much is known about her nowadays. But today Pulse.ng brings you her hit single for old times sake.
