A cassette of Nigerian music

It was bought by my grandad in Lagos. He gave it to my dad and he now listens to it in the car but it won't last long if he keeps doing that. It reminds me of my grandad. It has 13 songs and is sung in Yoruba. The artist is a man called Ebenezer Obey he was the lead singer and the band is called Igba Latye. They were popular in their day.
