Lagos City Vice (EP) by @Ayo_WANI


A fresh face on the Lagos scene, WANI conjures up musical memories from his childhood in Nigeria alongside later forays to the UK and Chicago all moulded into a supple, cosmopolitan cocktail of sounds.

Across six songs, his debut EP Lagos City Vice synthesises diverse influences snaking through Afropop, Afrobeats, dancehall and contemporary R&B, sprinkled with echoes of the ‘00s and crowned by WANI’s warm, resonating vocals.

Introductory single “Instaman” lays it all out with deliciously marimba-driven Afropop, providing food for thought for social media new romantics.
