Michael Olatuja

Michael Olatuja might as well be called “The Great Connector.”

His entire life story has comprised a series of connections, which converge on his latest work, Lagos Pepper Soup. The London-born, Lagos-raised bassist describes this album’s sound as “Cinematic Afrobeat,” and it’s a sonic experience of epic proportions.
