Happy birthday General Ayinla Kollington is a Nigerian Fuji musician from Ilota, in Ilorin, Kwara State, Nigeria. He is also called Baba Alatika, Kebe-n-Kwara, or Baba Alagbado.
Ayinla ranks alongside his friend and competitor Ayinde Barrister as the two most important artists to dominate Fuji music from its inception in the 1970s through to the 1990s by which time it had grown to become one of the most popular dance genres in Nigeria.
He is married to waka star Queen Salawah Abeni.
At the start of the 1980s Ayinla started his own record company, Kollington Records, to release his music and remains to this day an extremely prolific artist, having recorded over 50 albums, most of which have never been released outside of Nigeria.
May God bless his new age
