For those of you who haven’t been to see our show, here’s some great footage (courtesy of WAP TV) from the 2nd Edition featuring My band and our guests - Ekow Alabi, Yinka Davies, Siji, Don Abi & Beautiful Nubia. If I had to summarize the show in a sentence, I would say that it is a show for everyone - young and old- who loves live music, loves to dance and have fun in an atmosphere devoid of posers. I am also very pleased to announce that the pregnant lady in the video just gave birth to a beautiful baby girl.
Its the 3rd edition of Afropolitan Vibes @ Freedom Park, Lagos and you sure cant afford to miss out on this one:
Our monthly open air event will feature the queen of Yoruba talking drum ARA and Reggae-Dancehall Champion GENERAL PYPE sharing the stage with the 11 piece Bantu collective.

I’d like to invites you all to the 2nd edition of Afropolitan Vibes @ Freedom Park, Lagos. Its going to be a memorable evening of live music, cool breeze and Palm wine so make sure you don’t miss this one.
The open air event will feature our very own Soul-Jazz diva YINKA DAVIS, New York based Yoruba-Soul Brother SIJI, Bantu founding member ABIODUN and Ghanaian polyrhythmic drum master EKOW ALABI all sharing the stage with the 11 piece Bantu collective.
In December 2012 New York based musician & filmmaker Siji and i decided to shut down the bustling Bariga market in Lagos for the video shoot of our song “Oya Oya”. It was a guerilla style operation aimed at capturing the raw and spontaneous energy of the 20million strong megapolis where anything can happen and one must always be open to the unexpected. In keeping with this spirit, we got real people to come up and dance, laugh, drum and shake with us.
The outcome is one of the most memorable clips I’ve ever done.
Enjoy, shake wetin your mama dash you and please do leave your comments on the vimeo page.
The video caption says “Guess Who’s Back?” this got me thinking. Do they expect us to release a new album like every 6 months? After 20 years in the game (as my hiphop heads would say) i feel no pressure to prove myself to anybody. I just want to have fun and keep pushing myself.
Free fall equals trust and i’m learning to let go.
You all enjoy!
Just did a “close up” with HipHop World Magazine. Whilst filling the questionnaire i couldn’t help but ask -how much of myself am i willing to share? i guess we all end up editing our truths:
