The buzz is on for AYO's album, 'Joyful' - out next month. Her name means 'Joy' in Yoruba. She was born in Germany to a Nigerian father and a gypsy mum. Fela's music played in the house as Ayo was growing up, and Keziah Jones' is her preferred guitar technique.
I am a writer and arts journalist now based in Lagos. This is a blog on arts and culture. The focus is on Nigeria's art scene, especially her 'Word's Body' - the writers. As and when, we'll also touch on wider African writing, as well as international literature. In short, a saturation of the arts.
