EDITORS’ NOTES

Emerging Lagos-born singer-songwriter Jinmi Abduls combines his early influences of old Nigerian highlife and gospel with smooth-grooving R&B beats in his debut EP, Jinmi of Lagos. Abduls pays homage to his religious roots on “Mowadupe”—a light, airy track with a call-and-response feel that’s revisited in “Linda Highlife”. Abduls first forged his musical talent at an early age, aided by his siblings who helped expose him to global sounds—and it shows here in a vibrant six-strong collection that pools the best of cool rhythms and melodies from his home city.
