Wow! What can I say! I came to Nigeria last night….on a last minute confirmation ting. I said Fuck that! I aint passing on this opportunity, Are You Mad? I’m really visting Music of Black Origin right now, although it would have been nice to go to my 1st awards ceremony but boy…its not often you get offered a trip to Nigeria alie??. Its Black History Month so its like they couldn’t have picked a better time to ask me!
I’m here with Africa Express! A project Damon Albarn from ‘Blur’ & ‘Gorillaz’ put together! I am in awe of the place. I’ve been here less than 24Hrs & I absolutley love it. I’m here to celebrate Fela Kuti’s birthday. Its called ‘Felabrations’. If you don’t know who he is look him up! (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fela_Kuti)
Kano is here too, Red Hot Chilli Pepperes Bass Player n many others!
I’m just taking in all the music & culture. I went to Fela Kuti’s former home & tomb today…it was bloody amazing. Later in the week I’ll be performing to a crowd of 5000+ as the last day of the celebrations!!!
I have been backing the Jollof Rice & fried Fish….I fucking love it!! It feels good to be back in the Motherland…to my Nigerian Dargs back home…Your country is Beautiful! Shout out Buck & Management (G.E).
