ioi Ijaw- Rex Lawson- Abasi Ye Enye

Possibly the most talented and culturally gifted musician Nigeria ever had, Rex Jim Lawson, better known as Cardinal Rex Lawson, was from Buguma Ijaw homeland. Born on the 4th of march in 1934, Rex Lawson coud not only sing effortlessly but was also a standout trumpeter and a bandleader. With an Igbo mother from Owerri, the unique mix heritage inspired him to also learn the Ibibio/ Efik language as well.
