Collaboration between Bolajoko Ayomide (also known as Ogebobo) and Olusegun Akinduro (aka SegunViolin) resulted in the emotionally charged event Irinajo, which transcended the conventional performance venue. These two music lovers made an impact in the suburbs with their heartfelt violin playing, leaving an impression that will last a lifetime.
On October 13, 2023, the voyage began beneath the Iyana Oworo bridge and ended with another touching session at Akoka’s Ojo Square on October 21, 2023. It was only the beginning of a string of intense musical encounters when this campaign to reach suburbanites directly with music began.
The mesmerising violin work of the legendary Afrobeats musician Ogeebobo served as the catalyst for this seamless transition. A perfect artistic portrayal of the dreaming spirit, his most recent work, “Dreams,” captivated listeners and sent them on a hypnotic voyage with its enchanting melodies.
Segunviolin, the extraordinary violinist who won over British hearts, was also an integral part of this ensemble. His performances showcased the rich cultural legacy of Nigeria and were more than just musical performances; they were celebrations of unity via the shared language of song. Segunviolin brought a one-of-a-kind flavour to the musical scene at events like Hull’s International Carnival and London Lord Mayor’s Show. Thanks to a one-of-a-kind performance based on his expertise of indigenous African repertoires, he gave his fans an unforgettable experience.
The musical excursion that Ogeebobo and Segunviolin took their listeners on allowed them to see the enchantment happen right in their own neighbourhoods. Suburban towns were forever changed by the duo’s ability to improve people’s lives and ignite a deeper love for the arts. The magic of music was brought to the doorsteps of the listeners, making memories that will last a lifetime.
