pure african sound – 'Never Far Away' (you must see this one….pls)

Writing about web page http://www.lagbaja.com/

This chap is a Nigerian jazz/soul artiste – Lagbaja doing a duo with another Nigerian RnB Artiste Ego Ogbaro% The video is full of emotions with a balancing act from Ego’s divine soulful voice….I almost cried when i saw this one (sniff).
You’ve got to like the african ochestra & truly original video footage of a village setting in Western Nigeria. The video and sound uniquely complement each other. Please watch it and drop a comment cheers.

  1. Nice song – I like the drums.

    I didn’t understand the significance of the man’s headgear, though. Is that a Nigerian custom or something?

  2. This was taken from his website www.lagbaja.net:
    Lagbaja is a Yoruba word that means somebody, nobody, anybody or everybody. It perfectly depicts the anonymity of the so called “common man”. The mask and the name symbolize the faceless, the voiceless in the society, particularly in Africa.

    In my opinion, he is arguably the best Sax artiste in Nigeria at the moment and his mask distinguishes him from every other artiste.

    This sounds like me in my shower with the man next door playing barry white records…

  5. @ Hero: He is not the best of vocalists; I’ll say he is more as a satirical entertainer & a Sax man
