The Major Lazer trio, Diplo, DJ Jillionaire and Walshy Fire have never visited Nigeria as a group. Yet their presence is felt in the contemporary Nigerian music scene. A member of the trio, Diplo has worked extensively with Mr Eazi and a few other Nigerian artists.
Their recent group effort is the 17-track Afrobeats Mix which featured Niniola, Kizz Daniel, Davido and other Nigerian artists. They will be performing songs from this project on their visit to Lagos in October.
This would be the group’s first collective visit to Nigeria. Major Lazer would perform at the Hard Rock Beach in Lagos. The visit is part of a mini Africa tour themed, Major Lazer SoundSystem Live.
The tour is organised by U-Live, a subsidiary of the Universal Music Group (UMG) which specialises in promotion and live music planning.
Major Lazer SoundSystem Live would start with a visit to South Africa, Kenya, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Uganda and finally, Lagos on the 5th of October.
