Joy Nwosu Lo-Bamijoko is a professionally trained operatic soprano, music educator, music critic, African ethnomusicologist, broadcaster, skits writer, choral conductor, and songwriter. Joy was trained in operatic soprano in Italy and received her Ph.D. in music from Michigan State University, Ann Arbor; making her the second Nigerian female to earn a doctorate in music. This book addresses thought provoking and controversial issues such as feminine gender, the emancipation of women from the tyranny of men, male chauvinism, it's a man's world, the Nigerian factor, conspiracy theories, "African roforofo fights" ("Messy and nasty fights"); why was there only one professor of music in Nigeria for over two decades? And how did he pull this off? Suffice it to say, this book illuminates some of the dark surreptitious escapades in the Nigerian academic coterie. Other pertinent issues include the efficacy of prayer and spectacular triumphs by the power of God. The saga of Joy Nwosu encapsulates the ordeal women are constantly subjected to in a male chauvinistic society. This book is loaded with numerous fascinating photos of Joy Nwosu from 1960 to 2005. Nigerian journalists wrote rave reviews of her stunning performances and crowned Joy, "first lady of sound," "diva," "maestro," and "high priestess of Nigerian music;" titles that she rightfully earned and deserved for three reasons: (1) Joy was the first professionally trained female musician in Nigeria to combine operatic singing with popular dance music; (2) she was the first trained female musician to set up a dance band in Nigeria; and (3), Joy was the first trained female musician to release a Long Playing record in Nigeria.
