SAINT OUEN (I-Newswire) March 21, 2014 - KUKU shares a live studio session of one of a few ballads from his upcoming new LP. This one echoes "Ekò", Lagos, the famed Nigerian metropolitan city that groomed him. Blending his native Yoruba tongue with a grandiose English chorus, KUKU invites the world to a incomparable Lagos experience. This is a must-hear for every inhabitant of the Africa's "Center of Excellence." Thousands of miles away, the video was shot at the VAGH & WEINMANN studios in Paris France by Portuguese videographer and filmmaker, Victor Delfim.

In a perfect world this would be the official Lagos tourism anthem, then again, perfection and Lagos don't often correlate. Nevertheless, this is possibly the least expensive trip you can get to Lagos, so get on board and you don't even have to pack a luggage. All you need are your ears, your eyes, and most importantly your heart to receive the gospel of Ekò, Lagos City as sermoned by KUKU.

American born Nigerian singer-songwriter KUKU bridges the gap between his Yoruba roots and the western world. His effortless blend of mindful Yoruba lyricism, English, and Pidgin English with percussive guitar progression, and infectious percussions makes up his "Ijebu Cosmopolitan Suite". His 2011/2012 album Soldier of Peace (B?L?“GUN ?ŒR?’R?™N was met with critical acclaim. His version of the legendary Liverpool Football Club anthem You'll Never Walk Alone was the soundtrack of the ORANGE official sponsored advert for the 2013 African Cup of Nations. KUKU's latest collaboration with Congolese/Belgian rapper Baloji on a reprise of Fela Kuti's 'Buy Africa' is the leading track on the 2013 RED HOT + FELA benefit album by Knitting Factory Records. His latest project, Ballads & Blasphemy, is expected to be released in early 2014.
