Back in my nightclub days, and as a first port of call on the SS Goldfish, was the promotion, marketing and PR of Yoruba Records boss Osunlade. Mike Steva was also on the bill, and is hands down one of the most organised promoters I’ve to work with to date.
The party was awesome, the music vibing and when I reconnected with Mike recently, it was a no brainer for me to get on board and support these awesome artists and events happening down under!
Yoruba Records boss OSUNLADE is set to grace the shores of Australia once more for what is set to be an Aural journey of Ancestral Rhythms & Soulful, Deep Musical vibrations!
