Cardinal Rex Jim Lawson (1935-1971) was a superb trumpeter and emotive singer from Kalibari, south eastern Nigeria. After earning his stripes with Bobby Benson and Victor Olaiya, Rex went on to form his own band the Nigeraphone Studio Orchestra of Onitsha in 1960, then later formed the hugely popular Mayor’s Band of Nigeria, with whom he enjoyed many hits. Rex was the much-loved innovator of a timeless brand of highlife music; he wore his heart on his sleeve and often wept as he sang on stage. At the height of his stellar popularity, he was killed in a road crash on his way to a gig, still only in his 30s.
