WATCH: New documentary celebrates Lagos master musicians

26 February 2016, 19:01

Lagos - In a new documentary project which too six years to conclude, British-Nigerian filmmaker Remi Vaughan-Richards explores the captivating stories of several of Lagos’ long-forgotten musicians.

The documentary is about the  Yoruba ‘master musicians’ who make up the Faaji Agba Collective’.

One of the most prominent musicians featured in the film is the celebrated Prince Olayiwola Fatai Olagunju, better known as the late Fatai Rolling Dollar. 

The musicians had a revival in 2009, when Kunle Tejuosho, owner of Jazzhole Records, met Fatai Rolling Dollar and other largely forgotten musicians of Nigeria’s past, including Alaba Pedro, SF Olowookere and Ayinde Bakare came together to form a group. 

The group became the Faaji Agba Collective, and began recording under Jazzhole, even going on to play Brooklyn’s Prospect Park with Seun Kuti in 2011. 

The Faaji Agba documentary spotlights the long, rich, difficult, and beautiful history of the music scene of Lagos and Nigeria at large beginning in the 1940s to the present day through the resurgence of the chronicled musicians.
