Google celebrates the posthumous birthday of one of the finest musical stars in the field of traditional music (highlife), Oliver De Coque with a doodle art designed by a Nigerian artist.

The dexterous guitarist was born on the 14th day of April 1947 and died on 20th June 2008.

In a bid to acknowledge his great contributions to African music, Google contracted a Nigerian artist known as Ohab Tbj to design a doodle to mark his posthumous birthday today.

Throwing more light on this, the designer wrote:


Darling, I illustrated a @google Doodle
