Here at BNM, we’re big supporters of good music. Siji represents that very small fraction of what we like to call good music. He grew up in Lagos and London before moving to the US to chase his musical ambitions. His background (Culturally) coupled with the socio-political movements of his growing years, exposed a young Siji to the radical, politicized music of the Music legends like Fela Kuti, King Sunny Ade, Tony Allen. He doesn’t fall far from the tree as his spiel here will reveal.
Siji says of the story behind his video:
Should the gods deem me worthy of fatherhood, I have vowed to some day name my first daughter, ‘Morenike’ (moe-re-knee-ke). The name ‘Morenike’, in Yoruba means ‘I have found one to cherish’ and is usually bestowed upon a much sought after female child.
