|Brymo has just put his glasses down|
Lagos Jazz Series 2017, the latest edition of Lagos Jazz Series, was an entirely Nigerian affair with its theme "back to the basics".
|Oti B: anything else would be uncivilised|
Ed Keazor, a historian, a lawyer and a keen singer, was the MC of the evening, a perfect host never short of praise for the talent of artists (maybe it helps to be a lawyer!).
|Etuk Ebong and his band|
Brymo was magnificent with his powerful voice, he really captured the audience with his Lagos Touts (the name of his band). Not sure if it was an intentional reference to his modest background, but he was wearing large transparent glasses as he walked up on stage for his first song which gave him an air of precious okada driver. He did not fail to sing "Prick no get shoulder" (if you put the head, the rest dey enter). I enjoyed the farcical face of the bass player.
