"Lagbaja is a true original and an under-recognized force in West African music"--Banning Eyre, Afropop Worldwide
Lágbájá is a Yoruba word that means somebody, nobody, anybody or everybody. It perfectly depicts the anonymity of the so called “common man”. The mask and the name symbolize the faceless, the voiceless in the society, particularly in Africa. Once you see Lágbájá’s mask you are reminded of your own facelessness. This symbolism is so powerful that Lágbájá’s mask has popularized the use of the mask concept by other artistes both in Nigeria and beyond.
“Lagbaja is widely considered to be one of Nigeria's most exciting and interesting contemporary artists. Combining sophisticated compositions with a dynamic stage show and enigmatic personality, he is the current rage in Nigeria, in constant demand for live performance and ubiquitous on the airwaves. His monthly shows at his own Motherlan' Niteclub, in the heart of Ikeja - the capital of Lagos state, sell-out well in advance.” -World Music Central
