gollibe 1Firstly, i have no idea what Gollibe means? Secondly, i do not understand Igbo which forms 95% of the song. But honestly, from the moment i first heard the song in an electronics shop, i was hooked on it. I mean totally blown away by the ingenuity displayed by Flavour in penning and performing the song.

Gollibe has been on my playlist for sometime now at every event i sound, especially weddings and it will continue to be for a while…… an evergreen rendition of a classical igbo song. Thumbs up Mr Flavour.
