king2For an artist whose name translates to “one that wakes into royalty,” King Ajibade’s music certainly exemplifies the regal and beautiful connotations of such a title. The Nigeria native’s new EP, Passport, pays tribute to that royalty as Ajibade honors his Yoruba heritage by blending African, Latin, and Caribbean music with Western pop. It’s a sound that’s friendly to ears of any creed, and a sweet taste of the most flavorful genres in music.

Check out King Ajibade’s new video for “Excuse Me Lady,” a song that’s sure to lift spirits and get your body moving.
