We’ve written about the one and only Lagbaja on a couple of occasions. While he is not in our line up for our April Africa Music Issue, we wanted to do a quick spotlight on him, just in case you missed him in our previous feature. Lagbaja is a phenomenal artist whose musical creativity and talents show he intricately and intelligently understands what the world is looking for when it comes to music from Africa. With beats that are highly reminiscent of the motherland and heavy infusion of funk, jazz, rock, r&b and hip-hop, he keeps the fire burning for the world’s greatest African music legends like Fela Kuti and Sunny Ade.
Meanwhile, a young upcoming artist who we include in our lineup is 9ice. 9ice is being hailed as having the characteristics of these music legends as he continues the legacy of creatively intelligent music. Stay tuned for his feature! Meanwhile, enjoy some of the great classics from Lagbaja below. To support Lagbaja, you can check out his site and purchase his albums from his website!
