Spearheading a new wave of electronic music originating from Nigeria by way of London, musician/producer/vocalist Leke aka CHiF has been travelling back and forth between his two cities, Lagos and London, continually seeking ways to explore and push the musical envelope. After honing his skills with a variety of artists & productions on both continents, and working for a while as a sound designer in the Nollywood industry, CHiF has now pulled all his charms, experiences, fears and vulnerabilities into Ekiti Sound, an impressively eclectic project that speaks to today’s music heads, Afropunkers and global diaspora.

'Miss Dynamite'


Ekiti Sound spearheads a new musical dialogue between London and Lagos. Watch his second video ”Miss Dynamite”



His debut album Abeg No Vex wires novel musical circuitry into shape, soldering UK soundsystem culture, hip-hop and Afrobeat into new, haywire connections, a diverse chorus of global voices routed through its new configurations. It’s a starkly original record, built up of layered musical histories, papered over one another into a messy, exhilarating collage of sounds.

Abeg No Vex
(2xLP, digital, CD) is out on Crammed Discs on April 26th.
