Mysterious, eclectic, and enigmatic Afro-retro artist Ibejii shares ‘Happy Me’, the second single from his highly anticipated 2021 EP Intermission.
Ibejii, the storyteller, uses folklore, metaphor and vernacular to deliver tales of love and loss with keen sensitivity. Solidly rooted in the old values of his Yoruba heritage, renowned for its high incidence of twins and musical giants, London-born Ibejii wears his unusual birth and musical roots as badge of authenticity – a mastery of sound and emotion.
Happy Me is an electro-soul feel-good call for listeners to reclaim mental, physical and emotional wellness after a prolonged season of loss, lockdown and social distancing. Produced in Lagos by DopeL and Natalio Studios, Happy Me is inspired by a woman’s cry for ‘Happiness’. These simple words of self-affirmation are Ibejii’s gift to those who thirst for happiness and freedom from life’s vices.
Ibejii’s essence is a fine balance of ‘Taiye Kehin’ , the physical and the transcendent, time worn and timeless. His sound is a fine blend of African vibes and international sound; a unique blend of storytelling.
