In December 2012 New York based musician & filmmaker Siji and I decided to shut down the bustling Bariga market in Lagos for the video shoot of our song “Oya Oya”.
It was a guerilla style operation aimed at capturing the raw and spontaneous energy of the 20 million strong megapolis where anything can happen and one must always be open to the unexpected. In keeping with this spirit, we got real people to come up and dance, laugh, drum and shake with us.
Teamed up with top Hamburg based breakbeat producer BASEMENT FREAKS for this high energy dance track “Oya Oya”. Packed with funky horn riffs, an infectious groove and witty punch lines this tune is set to make you “Shake wetin your mama dash you”.
To Celebrate the release Bantu & Basement Freaks giving the track as a free download!
Shake wetin your mama dash you!
