On my last trip to Lagos, I was asked to perform at a prestigious event called Runway Jazz that was being headlined by Grammy Award winning Saxophonist/Recording Artist, Kirk Whalum. During his stay in lagos, my family and I had the honor of hosting him and his amazing band. We had some awesome food, great conversation and even a brief concert.
Kirk was so calm and soft spoken with wonderful stories and nuggets of wisdom to share. I truly learned a lot about music, his journey, a little bit about the late Whitney Houston, his take on the industry in general and he also advised me on places that I need to travel within the States. Thanks for being so warm Kirk.
Here are a few pictures and a video too!
Just before he was about to leave, Kirk grabbed my hand and dragged me to the piano.. demanding a song.
It was a glorious day! Unforgettable! Thanks so Afolabi Oke and Queen Ahneva for making this possible!
