There are times when the Mayegun of Yorubaland is performing and he closes his eyes, and still flow with the beats. He does it on several occasion most especially when he is singing classical music.
Let’s remind you that k1 is the first to introduce jazz into Fuji music and the blend has magnified the content in Fuji music beyond social appellations and panegyrics.
The Mayegun was asked recently why he closes his eyes when he signs slow fuji classics and he responded: What makes you close your eyes? What causes it?
2 things sometimes make me close my eyes. It is either there is a bright stage light placed directly opposite me that is going into my eyes, or I am going into trance musically, going deep into my music and it takes me on like that. At times I won’t even know I shut my eyes like that until I come back to reality and my eyes open. It’s been part of me. That is part of my build-up. :
