who I am
SINGER/SONG WRITER, inspirational speaker & performance artist
I am a Nigerian, human rights activist, performance artist, singer, songwriter, co-founder and vice-chairperson of Queer Base Vienna- Austria (Emeritus).
As a percussionist, the sound of the African drum is not only a way of making music but also a means of sending a message through the sound of the rhythm of the beating of the drum. The sound calls for peace and unity from high mountain tops and deep valleys. The drum represents the voice box of Mother Africa: It synchronizes to the heartbeat of her people, her rhythm stirs their bones to single action calling each one of them to love and solidarity.
activism through art
Solidarity is like a space one could call a base, a favorite place, a place you may begin and end each day, a pride and glory, such a space where stories are told and heard, a place that soaks up all that is said, each corner laced with items that were chosen with care.
From beautiful and creative artistic paintings to activist quotes; the atmosphere being just right, something so near to feeling home and far from not being at home: solidarity.
