He moved back to Onitsha where he formed the Music Royals, but the Biafran war put an end to their career in 1967. After the war he resurrected the band in the early 70s as the Philosophers National. Tragically Celestine Ukwu died in a car crash on 8 May 1977, not yet forty. Listening to Celestine Ukwu generally and to this album in particular, he was not influenced by anybody. He evolved his own style and this is why he is an innovator and a true artist like Rex Lawson. His soft, gentle-paced music is totally reflective of his personality. He was soft-spoken, gentle, unassuming and highly talented.

He left four years later to launch his own band, the Music Royals. Following a hiatus caused by the Biafran war of independence from 1967-70, the Music Royals were resurrected as the Philosophers National, who distinguished themselves with a series of sparkling, subtle highlife releases during the 1970s.
