Description NIGED:MUSIC:ENTERTAINMENT:PERSONALITIES:OCT 1957 It's Showtime For Bobby Benson’I'm a showman, not a musician“ claims band leader Bobby Benson. I relaxed in a not-too-comfortable chair in a plush Lagos Nightclub where Bobby Benson and his Hep Cats dished out music thrice a week and listened to his latest composition. I watched a packed crowd of dancers of all colours sway to the rhythm of the tune and ask for more and my mind raced back to somewhere at Moleye street in the year of the Lord, 1945. Why? That's where it all started I saw the birth of Bobby's now famous Jam Session Orchestra. I can still re-live those evenings of sweating and shouting and of the ear-splitting screeches of imperfectly played musical instruments. (Photograph by Drum Photographer BAHA)
