Profile of the performer Victor Uwaifo: A Nigerian musician, writer, sculptor, instrument inventor, and former wrestler best known for his joromi style of high-life music. Born in Benin City, Edo State, Nigeria in 1941.



"Guitar Boy" Victor Uwaifo learned his skills watching E.T. Mensah's guitarist, Dizzy Acquaye. Following a stint with Victor Olaiya's band, he honed his sound during the '60s using Pidgin and Edo dialects, palm wine styles and traditional ekassa and gdadagbada, becoming an incredible player and showman in his own right.



His hit 'Joromi' exploded in 1969, selling over 100,000 copies and Uwaifo recorded prolifically during the '70s, releasing over 100 singles with his bands the Melody Maestros and the Titibitis. He has since been a good friend to the West African music industry – over 50 of his former band members have enjoyed careers in their own right.
