If nobody here can recall it, then you must all be real kids on this forum. Or you were not watching soccer in Sierra Leone. Even Eddie Grant, Specky, Spectator , KL , Moderator , etc ? Wow.
It was the memorable football match at Recre ( Now Brookfields Stadium ) in 1973 when the great Mighty Blackpool, the champions, were thrashed by Ports Authority 5-1. The Nigerian soccer star then, Wasiu Sunmonu , scored three goals in that game and this music AON AON had just come to Sierra Leone. The fans adapted the refrain of the music, "Ay Subudu, AON AON "into : "Ay, Sunmonu, AON AON." You know how creative our people can be. In poda podas, taxis, clubs and bars, the song became popular among Ports supporters. I believe MKK , if he is still alive ( Because he has just dropped out of the world ) will remember this. By the way, somebody tell him I am back and I want to challenge his knowledge of Sierra Leone's history. I want to take him on.
