Nikiibu Notebook : Mr. Salia Koroma

The very best incite into Mr. Salia Koroma, who was a famous Mende singer, accordionist, poet, and troubadour. I met him when we lived in Kenema and when I did I realized that I was with a great man. Nikiibu continues his wonderful site called Nikiibu Notebook ( and on it he posts wonderful interviews of Mr. Koroma done in 1993 when he was almost 90 years old. For anyone interested in Salia Koroma or wanting to learn about him - these interviews are priceless.

the interviews can also be seen on facebook:
