This December, Re-Imagine Fuji Music Like Never Before At FUJI: A Opera

3101 Media presents FUJI: A OPERA, a multi-dimensional entertainment platform which deconstructs the fuji music genre from its enigmatic past and re-imagines it for a new generation of music fans and culture lovers. 

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 worshippers at Ramadan, and its transformation to reference sound for contemporary Nigerian pop music.

Highlights of the week will include (i) a rich multi-visual exhibition of Fuji sub-culture seen through archival recordings, costumes and memorabilia. The exhibition will serve as the official launch of the FUJI: A Opera merchandise collection; (ii) An Audience With KWAM 1, presented in partnership with FUMAN (the Fuji Musicians Association of Nigeria).  This will be a 2-hour lecture exploring the evolution of Fuji Music - Past, Present, and Future; and (iii) a Live Music Showcase – an Invitation-Only live set, featuring two icons of the genre - King Wasiu Ayinde Marshall and Saheed Osupa.

 FUJI: A Opera is scheduled to hold at the Alliance Française de Lagos/ The Mike Adenuga Centre, Ikoyi, Lagos. Select events will be open to members of the public via registration on the FUJI: A Opera social pages.

Join us this December as we pay homage to an enduring past and re-imagine the future of FUJI Music.
