Ibejii Music proudly announce the release by the nation’s most compelling new sound, Ibe~Jii, of the first single from his hugely acclaimed body of musical works, GreenWhiteDope. Ayanfe, the single, is out now!
Presented in Yoruba, Ibe~Jii, the eclectic African storyteller, delivers his sensual tale of love and longing with musical verve, energy and sensitivity; using his musical journey to tell melodic tales of love, life and wonderment. With Ayanfe and GreenWhiteDope, Ibe~Jii is set to reawaken old sounds, old values and old loves.
Rooted solidly in the western Nigeria culture renowned for its high incidence of twins and musical giants, Ibe~Jii wears his unusual birth marking and musical roots as ‘authenticity’ – an embodiment of sweet sound, great soul, warmth and sensitivity.
Poet, thinker, romantic, Ibe~Jii’s journey is a subtle blend of the Taiye and the Kehinde, the seen and the undisclosed, the old and the new, African vibes and international sounds. His is a genre of storytelling – of tales of love, life and hope; of unbridled love – pure, true, unblemished and selfless.
Ayanfe is Ibe~Jii’s first gift to the world he inhabits: A world of pure souls, of lovers of edifying verse, a world of chivalry and character – a beautiful, beautiful place.
Ibe~Jii welcomes lovers of great sound to join this journey of self-discovery – a journey that embraces hope and promise, but also self-doubt and diffidence.
Ayanfe is released from Ibe~Jii’s hugely acclaimed body of musical works, GreenWhiteDope.
