Wunmi is an artist that effortlessly joins the dots between Nigeria’s Afrobeat heritage, New York’s house pedigree and London’s jazz, broken beat and classic street soul sounds.

The world was introduced to Wunmi in summer 1986 as the dancer silhouetted in Soul II Soul’s ‘Back To Life’ video. An integral component of the Soul II Soul show, Wunmi quickly established a bold, self-styled image with flowing braids and her self-designed outfits which became an invaluable addition to the Funki Dred look.

Wunmi’s Masters At Work produced bangers include the classic dance floor bombs "MAW Expensive (Tribute To Fela)” and “Ekabo”. Wunmi’s “What A See” track was remixed by A Guy Called Gerald and her collaboration with Osunlade on the track "Rader Du" remains a staple of discerning house music dancefloors worldwide. Wunmi narrated the excellent Nigeria 70 compilation album for Strut Records and has recorded with a wide range of massive talent including Ornette Coleman, Vernon Reid, Roy Ayers, Oba Funke, King Britt, Bugz In The Attic, Truby Trio, Tony Allen, Pee Wee Ellis and Fred Wesley.

When the Red Hot organization commissioned an ambitious album paying tribute to Afrobeat Godfather Fela Kuti in 2004, Wunmi was at the top of their list. The result was a dynamite version of Fela’s ‘Zombie’ backed by Bugz In The Attic’s razor sharp beats. Zombie became the big club track from the project and was accompanied by some memorable shows including Bump N’ Hustle at Toronto’s legendary Roxy Blu.

Wunmi recently released a remix EP of her full length album A.L.A. (Africans Living Abroad) in collaboration with Jellybean Soul records.

Wunmi's explosive energy and hi-octane dance moves has rocked crowds worldwide. She is an irresistible super-hero of love, fighting spirit, and joy. Don’t miss this opportunity to rock it with a special presence!
