FUJI: A Opera is a 5-Day culture explosion celebrating the history of Fuji Music and its rich sub-culture.

From Monday 14th to Saturday 19th December, FUJI: A Opera will explore the belligerent past of a genre that started as Ajiwere, folk music for Islamic worshipers at Ramadan, and its transformation to reference sound for contemporary Nigerian pop music.

Date: Mon, December 14, 2020– Sat, December 19, 2020
Venue: Alliance Française de Lagos / Mike Adenuga Centre / Maison Eric Kayser Ikoyi, 9 Osborne Road, Lagos.
Ticket: Register Here

Fuji counts as one of the most eclectic forms of indigenous music, combining vibrant drums with a philosophy of fun, making it the ideal music choice for a large number of people worldwide. However, for all of Fuji’s influence on popular culture and lifestyle, its impact is rarely documented with the respect and vigour it deserves.

FUJI: A Opera hopes to start some needed conversations. For 5 days, come try Fuji out, breath in a space that is expansively furnished to reflect everything –a scene that’s no stranger to tabloid headlines, sonic brilliance, fashion, popular impact, an imitable evolution – that makes the genre the heavyweight it is.
