Three of Yinka Ayefele's band boys disappear in the US

Gospel music styled secular singer, Yinka Ayefele left Nigeria on September 2nd with a 14-man band for a six-week musical tour of the US, which took them to New York, Washington, Houston, Atlanta, Baltimore, Maryland and Dallas. He returned to Nigeria this week with three band members missing. The three missing men according to a petition filed by Ayefele are:
1. The lead vocalist of Ayefele’s Merry-Makers Band, Solomon Motimoke popularly known as ‘Yatty’ who dumped the band while they were in Washington DC on 11th October.
2. Ojoyido Adegbenga Ezekiel (Keyboardist), who disappeared at the band’s hotel at Howard Johnson Inn on Rockaway Boulevard, New York on Tuesday, 15th October
3. Olusola Kayode Isaac (vocalist), who disappeared at the La-Guardiala Airport, New York on Monday, 14th October on his way from Houston.
Yinke Ayefele has written to the US Homeland Security, asking them to track and deport these men.

Sunday Otuns said...

Going abroad is a fashion for nigerians.Everybody want to go there to puff and wash plates.They dont know that without green card and work permit they are just a rolling stone.The reasons nigerians who travelled to europe ended up in the prison is because many of them cant get a job because of they dont have work permit.so they become pickpocket,car snatching,cocain pusher and armed robbers.nigerians should be enlighten that it is not greener if you are a black man.

The US homeland cannot depot them now until their valid visa expired.Except they are caught in criminal act, they may have gone into US recesses for aeon.They will be doing odd job, but since they are musicians things may work out fine for them.What they ahve forgotten is that if they had returned, even if it is single entry the can reapply and may get visa easily again.I am bewildered with this scenario as Yinka may not have the opportunity to take his band boy to US easily again.

I honestly don't feel bad that ayefele wrote to the homeland security to deport these men, because they will implicate him. They were under his guidance and now have escaped. Im sure he reported to let the u.s govt know that he is not responsible for them disappearing. Why would they want to put sand in his garri?

Why would those guys runaway it will now seem that ayefele brings boys to America and then they run away. I see his point.

I can't stop laughing after reading the blog. It's likely the 3 band member wanted a better life and a better future for themselves. Absconding from trips abroad didn't just start today, I remember vividly when some Nigerian fans at the Under 17 world-cup did the same act in far away Trindad and Tobago. Although, it may seems to have destroyed the singer reputation, but from the other point of view, haba, the want a better life

Hmmmm something must've seriously been a reason for disappearance. This is not the first time that these guys have travelled to the US. I first remember meeting them in 2008. This article just has me speechless...Hmmmm I only wonder.

And Yatty features are so distinct you can spot him a mile away...So I wonder what is really the plan and do each of the guys know where the other is...and who is going to rat who out. I just pray all turns out well. These people also have families.

D ppl sayin y did he report dem are funny! Dnt u knw d implication it wud av on him wen he is comin bck to dis same country to perform again? Morover it is betrayal on their part to av left d band and run, weda it is for greener pastures or not,one tin about stayin abroad is dat if u dnt av a work permit u are not goin to make ot, they wil end up hiding and regrettin de ran at d first place cos dem no go fit de inconvenience ppl with their problems,bad as it may sound,ayefele reported dem bcos dat is d right tin to do so it dsnt look lik he was part of their plan! So tink bfor u comment

Com to tink of it,nigerians are alwys involved in crime in western world,they are always in d news for bad reasons, right now in d uk,they are about bringin in almost 500prisoners bck to naija to serve in naija prisons..naija I hail thee!

Anonymous said...

It shows u r uninformed, u can work in U.S without work permit. So hw the hell do people who go there n stay over there for some time get their work permit. I've heard of a bank manager that left Nigeria for America b4.... It's about seeing the fact that u can make it better over there. America and Canada are lands of opportunity. I don't know about Europe. An American with an average standard of living enjoys life better than a Nigeria with a high standard of living. If u like be dangote, that doesn't nt stop Phcn from taking the light. I knw u will want to say they use standby generators, u knw what, poorest americans don't av to waste their resources and energy in getting a gen to work. That's a small illustration. We pray for a better Nigeria.

Anonymous said...

You are damn right. The rich Nigerians still live in fenced homes, locked behind heavy gates, surrounded by guards and heavily armed men. They cannot move or drive around freely even in their neighbourhoods, not because they are celebs but because they cannot guarantee security of their lives. Even getting help during medical emergency, whosai...they wait for long flights to Europe or US. Then talk about the average and poor nigerians, from darkness to bad roads to low income to injustice to insecurity to poor education for their children to unhealthy env with musquitoes and untended open smelly gutters to inflation to religious deceit to unrealised dreams and finally low life expectancy and untimely death. Is this a country to be proud of? Perhaps not yet.

Lol. Ayefele's pain. I wonder ayefele's music without yatty and yido who is one of the best if not the best keyboardist in ibadan. Ayefele's song will be soooo gentle without this boyz. That's his pain. This boyz have travelled with him several times . Europe, America, Canada n so on. So something must have gone wrong. Yido has 2 exotic cars, a family, a very big studio. So something is wrong somewhere....
