TRUE STORY!!! Most of you have never heard of “Junglist” a musical duo of Oritse Femi and Chibudo?
They were so famous back then in Ajegunle. Some of their hit songs , “Flog Politician Koboko“ , “Elewon” and the others.
They were doing well indeed until they started listening to peoples opinions , those people came through Chibudo , they were like;
“Chibudo you should go SOLO (Stay Alone) Na you dey write most of una songs , na Just voice Femi get”
Go solo , you go blow. Oritse Femi dey hold you back”
Indeed , he was the writer of most of their songs. He paid attention to what those people were saying and decided to give it a trial. His Egungun wasn’t really careful.
At Last , Chibudo decided to go SOLO and Oritse Femi had no other choice , but stay as one man mopol too. They both ventured into the showbiz as separate entities.
Not long after their separation , Oritse Femi came through , with “Mercies Of The Lord“ , the song was a hit , in the remix , he featured the great late Dagrin.
He didn’t slope there. He dropped another one , “Better For Everyman” where he featured Vector the Viper.
He crowned it with a collabo with D’ banj in “Double Wahala” – You know what it to feature someone like D’Banj those days now.
What Happened To His Former Partner , Chibudo?
Chibudo who changed his name to Chi-Junglist.
Chi Junglist , became a shadow of his old self. All the songs he released after the breakup , was never heard and trend. Song like “Pursue Dem” didn’t even make it all over Ajegunle ,
talkless of penetrating the mainstream market.
Chibudo struggled so bad , but all are still in vain.
From someone that has been charging so well for performance in the hood , not fall back to someone that begs for a show in the same Ajegunle Hood.
Same people that advised him to go SOLO , started making jest of him.
While Oritse Femi was touring around the world , on Paid shows , Chibudo was seen walking about the streets of Ajegunle. He was frustrated!!!
There’s nothing as frustrating as seeing your ex-partner excelling , while you are still stagnant , and knowing fully well you suggested the break-up.
That was the fate of Chibudo , watching his ex-partner Oritse Femi on TV granting interviews here and there , chilling with top celebrities.
He passed through constant criticisms from people like;
“You be mumu ooo! Wetin make you break up with Oritse Femi?
Shebi na una 2 for dey enjoy now?”
Just last year , Chibudo was struck by an unknown sickness that made him seriously ill.
See his pictures before he passed away below:-
Chi-Junglist was broke , and nothing to rely on , he came out to seek for alms from people to go for treatment.
After everything , he died on 2nd Nov 2019. Yes! He’s dead now
Rest On Chibudo!!
People’s opinions should never seek for shelter in your heart , no matter what!
