DJ Spotlight: Firefly

Categories:

Firefly hosts the Africa O-Ye! program from 2 PM to 4 PM every Thursday. The program has broadcast a range of music from the African continent for the last 13 years.

Firefly, also known as Tony Alabi, came to the US from Nigeria where his parents were from ethnic groups with significantly different cultures. His father is Yoruba and his mother Ibo. He spent much of his childhood in the predominantly Muslim Northern Nigeria, where his parents lived and worked, and vacationed with his maternal grandfather, a tribal Chief in the Christian/Animist Eastern Nigeria. As a teenager, Firefly attended school in Christian/Muslim Yorubaland in Western Nigeria. Perhaps this diverse background predestined Firefly to create the bridge between KBOO listeners and the wealth of African musical styles.

Welcome to a New Year.  I'm starting my show with two songs off the music from the acclaimed television series Africa to set the tone for the international hour of music I will deliver. Terrence Howard will send us in another direction rich in history and electrical rythmns.

The rest evolves as it should.

Stay tuned and enjoy.
