— by KUKU

KUKU shares a live studio session of one of a few ballads from his upcoming new LP. This one echoes “Ekò”, Lagos, the famed Nigerian metropolitan city that groomed him. Blending his native Yoruba tongue with a grandiose English chorus, KUKU invites the world to a incomparable Lagos experience. This is a must-hear for every inhabitant of the Africa’s “Center of Excellence.” Thousands of miles away, the video was shot at the VAGH & WEINMANN studios in Paris France by Portuguese videographer and filmmaker, Victor Delfim.

In a perfect world this would be the official Lagos tourism anthem, then again, perfection and Lagos don’t often correlate. Nevertheless, this is possibly the least expensive trip you can get to Lagos, so get on board and you don’t even have to pack a luggage. All you need are your ears, your eyes, and most importantly your heart to receive the gospel of Ekò, Lagos City as sermoned by KUKU.

"What you do is like the gospel. It appeals to the innocence of children and the experience of the fully matured adults. Your music is like that Bible or Quran they sought for when physical beauty starts to wane and making a life takes precedence."
