April 11 last year, our friend Funmi Lawal lost the fight to cancer; a year down the line, we, her friends, have come together to remember her with this song – one written by Prince Adewale Oreshade, and sang by Aduke. We have created a Facebook page and a Twitter account, where articles, videos and materials on how to prevent and cure Cancer are being shared to the general public.

For those that are finding it hard to remember Funmi Lawal, she is the UNILAG Law graduate that Don Jazzy gave millions of Naira for her chemotherapy and radiation treatment abroad, Where her malignant sarcoma was treated, and it was her case that started the rave of artistes donating to Cancer patients; her entire arm had to be amputated because the Cancer had spread, and on getting to Nigeria, it had gone to her lungs. Before it could be treated again, she gave up the ghost; this song is titled “Tomorrow Is Not Given” and the message we wish to pass across is a health-conscious one.

We want Nigerians, and the world at large to always do check-ups regularly, so that these diseases can be detected early; Aduke is a veteran artiste, and the sole musician that used the Ojota Ocuppy Nigeria ground to shoot the video to her popular song, “Hear The Voice“. She has since released her debut album, and a host of other singles; “Tomorrow Is Not Given – TING” is an Afrobeat fused with tender Jazz – soulful too. We hope it moves you to be health conscious. | ENJOY!!!
