Album artwork for Vol 4 by Alhaji Waziri Oshomah

Waziri hails from a small part of Edo State in southern Nigeria called Afemailand, known for being a harmonious region where Muslims and Christians live - and dance - together.

And there, as a devout Muslim and an exemplar of religious piety in his community, Waziri’s music fuses Etsako / Afemai folk styles with pan-Nigerian highlife and pop to create a sublime vehicle for his Islamic philosophy that gets everyone - Muslims, Christians, whoever - on the dancefloor.
