BENIN CITY - WORK
PRESENTED BY COLLEEN O'KEEFFE
With their Outkast-meets-James Brown style, Benin City are one of the UK's outstanding new bands. This brilliant London five-piece outfit fuses funk, drum and bass, hip-hop, Afrobeat, poetry and jazz, fronted by two of the UK's finest spoken word artists, Joshua Idehen and Musa Okwonga.
Benin City's single 'Work,' was played on Sky Sports' SoccerAM and featured as single of the week by Xfm's John Kennedy, who also featured them on his X-Posure live session. They have appeared twice on BBC3's "The Verb"; on the BBC World Service, and BBC 6Music with Huey Morgan of Fun Loving Criminals; on Reuters for their Africa Daily programme, and they have the enthusiastic support of Mark Lamarr (BBC Radio 2) and Craig Charles (Funk and Soul Show, BBC 6Music). They have supported Fool's Gold, Lack of Afro, Kid British, Lazy Habits, Kasai Masai, Sound of Rum and The Thirst.
