Ajegunle-Parable of the Talent

Ajegunle is an entertainment/showbiz village. It is a talent field that runs on factories or entertainment minting presses, churning out fresh talents in sports, music, comedy, dance, movie, session men and others on a continuous conveyor belt.

Daddy Showkey is the acknowledged master of the Ajegunle street sound known as “Galala”. Influenced by roots reggae, galala fuses Jamaican, African-American and highlife into pulsating dance music. The music is mostly delivered in Pidgin English of the Warri, Delta State blend.

I love life, love God and am a collector of rare items like the ash of a phoenix, egg of a unicorn, tears of an Angel and I drink pap with chopsticks.
Creativity found me, though I wasn't lost and am still paying the price of a chosen one.
It has always been the nature of man to confuse genius with insanity.
