Since 1993, Nigerian multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter, Lágbájá has continued to make waves in the music industry putting his footprints on the sands of time. Usually clad in African prints and a mask that show who the real boss is, the singer is one of the finest products of music the country has ever produced.

Lágbájá who is often compared to Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti, releases songs that touch sociopolitical topics without fear of getting the higher-ups. His adept use of multiple instruments in his music has continued to make his songs evergreen- the kind of music that still keeps you going for years. He recently clocked 60 years and in celebration of the veteran musician, we have complied 9 facts that you never knew about him.
