The Eka Family
Living the dream
Victor Eka watched Sound of Music as a child in the 80s and decided he would raise his family to master and play just one instrument. He dreamt of traveling the world with his wife and children as members of the ensemble, performing before distinguished audiences. Today, Victor is living his dream: His wife, children and himself all play the saxophone. It is usually a delight to see them perform together. The Eka Family hasn’t traveled the world yet to hold sold-out concerts but they have performed before Vice President, HE Prof. Yemi Osinbajo. They have also travelled Nigeria to performed at numerous events.
