On the first episode of (de)Ciphered, host Christabel Nsiah-Buadi speaks to London-born, Lagos-raised, and New York-based electric and acoustic bassist and composer Michael Olatuja. The conversation took place in mid-2020 when the realities of COVID and the ongoing protests against anti-Black racism shook the world into reality.
Listen as they talk about Michael’s most recent album, ‘Lagos Pepper Soup’ and his impressive career, which has taken him across continents. Olatuja also pays homage to UK Hip Hop legend TY, and talked about navigating emotionally difficult times.
