Yemi Ogunbiyi Reads from His Memoirs at Roving Heights

Yemi Ogunbiyi’s The Road Never Forgets is a riveting memoir that takes the reader from cosmopolitan Kano in the late 1940s, to the seats of power in Mumbai, India, London UK, and Abuja in Nigeria. The Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka, anoints it as “a book about love of humanity”.

Junkman shows “Waiting for Bus” at Alliance Francais

Dil Humphrey-Umezulike, better known as Dilomprizulike (born 1960 in Enugu, Nigeria) is a contemporary artist working in sculpture, performance and painting who has adopted the moniker “The Junkman From Africa”. In his work he recycles and transforms heaps of old clothing and other detritus found on city streets, creating sculptural installations and performances that reflect the disenfranchised situation of many African people. He created the “Junkyard Museum of Awkward Things”, a sculptural environment built up from found objects, in Lagos and has also made a version of it for the Oriel Mostyn Gallery in Llandudno, Wales.

Waiting for Bus, his latest installation, will be on view at the Alliance Francaise in Ikoyi, Lagos from May 21, 2022

Venue/Dates/Show Time: Alliance Francais, Mike Adenuga Centre, 9 Osborne Rd, Ikoyi, 4.30pm, May 21, 2022.

MUSIC

SUGA’S Sunday Show @ Shades

Lagos City’s largest indoor Bar plays host to the widely acknowledged O’Suga Band this Sunday. The group christened: Sugarman &The Crossroad Band, is beloved in the barroom circuit for the extensive strumming antics of its acoustic guitarist. But the singers are also as comfortable with rendering afrobeats (Naija Hip Hop, Naija R&B) as the guitarists are adept at stretching the rock effect, so the band delivers a full bodied, diverse sound range, fit for the multiracial crowd at the Shades bar on Sunday evenings.

Venue/Dates/Show Time: Shades, No 1, Anifowoshe Street, Off Kofo Abayomi, Victoria Island: May 22, 2022. Time: 7pm.
