Ladies and gentlemen, Bongos Ikwe is making a big comeback! Decades after dropping the mic, the pop star who’s now know more as a hotelier, is getting set to rock the mic again and repeat the magic that got fans eating from his palms in the early days of his career.  A close source revealed to AyeniTheGreat, last week that Ikwe is ready with a 26-tracked album currently being mixed by Foster Zeeno. ‘He’s so excited about doing music again. He says all the time that he is very happy, and hopes his fans will love the music. And because he knows he has to appeal to everyone, he’s working with younger people who understand the current trends’, said a privy source. And it was an equally excited Zeeno that told AyeniTheGreat ‘I’m priviledged to be working with such an icon. I listened to his music while growing up in Warri so I feel so great working with him.’ Acclaimed director Wudi Awa has reportedly been confirmed to direct the videos that’ll accompany the audio release.  Bongos Ikwe is presently resident in Oturkpo, Benue state, where he runs a chain of hotel businesses. He is mostly remembered as the voice behind the cock crow at dawn soundtrack, as well as for is numerous hits including Mariama, tear drops, and still searching…
