Femi Kuti - Definitive Collection

Femi was born in London to Fela and Remi Kuti and grew up in the former Nigerian capital, Lagos. His mother soon left his father, taking Femi to live with her. Femi eventually became a member of his father's band.

Like his father, Femi has shown a strong commitment to social and political causes throughout his career, but he differs from his father in his religious views.

Below is a compilation album.


Daddy Showkey - The Ghetto Soldier

Arguably the most popular music icon from Ajegunle, Daddy Showkey, along with the likes of Baba Fryo, Father U-Turn, Junior & Pretty, Daddy Fresh, were amongst the list of artists famous for pioneering music from the Ghetto of Ajegunle. Born John Odafe Asiemo, he broke into the Nigerian music industry with his own genre of music called “Galala”. Trained as a professional boxer, Showkey took to music at a young age, performing in high school talent shows. Currently located in the United States, Showkey attributes his success to his wife who stood by him through thick and thin. Here is his album “The Ghetto Soldier”


Lagbaja - Sharp Sharp

Born Bisade Ologunde in Lagos, Nigeria, he adopted the name Lagbaja (meaning "anonymous" or "faceless one" in Yoruba) as he embarked on his career in the early 90s. His name was reflected in his choice of stage attire – often wearing traditional wears and a mask to represent the "common man" in keeping with the carnival tradition of his Yoruba tribe. He formed his first small band in 1991 in Lagos after he had taught himself to play the saxophone. Their debut album was released in 1992. He is now based in Manhattan, New York. Here is his most current work “Sharp Sharp”
