On my quartet's recent trip to Nigeria, we had a chance to visit Lagos's famous "Shrine"—a sort of Afrobeat Mecca! Although it wasn't really a main concert night, we were lucky enough to meet Femi Kuti backstage and also see him perform with his youth "training" band. Amazing musicians and amazing atmosphere. Unforgettable night!

Thanks to Douglas for the photos!

MOIQ After Nigeria!

MOIQ just back from Lagos where we met awesome local musicians and performed during event called “Awesome Praise”. It was great time on different and such an interesting continent (I've never been in Africa before!).

On the picture belowe, left to right: Olavi, Pauli, me, Douglas & Olawale Opayinka (event organiser).

Awesome Praise event which took place in Freedom Park Lagos 11.11.11.

Have a look to the right side galery for nice review in Nigerian “The Guardian”.
