Elder’s Corner

From the colorful, celebratory sounds of Juju to the politicised urgency of Afrobeat, Nigerian musicians have spearheaded some of Africa’s most prominent musical movements. Oftentimes, their work formed the backdrop against which the nation blossomed. So what happened to these pioneering artists who rose to prominence during the country’s halcyon years, and continued to endure when it faltered? “Elder’s Corner” is a voyage of return and discovery, an epic tale of survival, using music to reconnect the past to the present.

from his rich ancestral background. To further broaden his creative vision, Siji took to directing and producing videos and documentaries to help bring his musical compositions to life and to share part of his cultural history with a wider audience.
