MEET FEMISLIDE


Copyright: Femislide on Facebook

Oluwafemi Akinbodunwa, also known as Femislide, is an award-winning international afro-fusion musician.

He was born in 1978 in Musin, Lagos, Nigeria.

He is a trombonist, trumpeter, songwriter and vocalist. 

Femislide performs jazz, afro-funk and highlife genres of music.

He has been making and performing music for the past twenty-three years. 

His role models in the music sector of the entertainment industry are; the late Fela Anikulapo Kuti, the late Haruna Isola and King Sunny Ade. 

He has recorded and or performed music with different musicians such as; Seyi Solagbade, Blackface, Lagbaja, Jesse King, Charly Boy, Waje, 2Baba Idibia, MI, Yolanda Brown, Mike Aremu, etc. 

Four songs from his EP are;
  1. Mari Jo
  2. Ife
  3. Teacher
  4. The Rich Also Cry

These four songs have great lyrical compositions, meaningful messages, sweet melody, vocal dexterity, sound balance and are professionally performed.

I thoroughly enjoyed these songs and cannot say which is my best. 

However, in Teacher, I expected to hear Tai Solarin's name as one of the teachers mentioned. I think that he was a prolific, prominent and outstanding teacher during his lifetime. Albeit, the ommission of his name does not in any way take away from the quality and beauty of that song. 

I rate these four songs 10/10.

Indeed Femislide is not joking with his musical career at all.

 

You can find Femislide's music at www.femislide.com and follow him via his social media handles which can be found at the bottom right side of his website.
