Sir Victor Uwaifo (the 'Sir' is apocryphal) is a Nigerian musician, famous for his joromi music.
He was born in Benin City, Ebo State, Nigeria in 1941. His best-known song, "Guitar Boy and Mamiwater" was a huge hit in 1966. It was inspired by an encounter - which he has long maintained actually occurred - with a mami wata (mermaid) while lounging on Bar Beach in Lagos. He also served as commissioner for arts and culture in Edo State under the government of Lucky Igbinedion.
