His new song LOGO is to be released on the 10th of June 2016.
LasGiiDi who lived in the United States for a larger part of his life–from the tender age of 12, has always kept in touch with his Yoruba heritage, which is every evident in his musical afro-pop style and talking drum influenced rhythms. This could be as a result of spending his formidable childhood years growing up in Ilasa and attending Adventist high school in Ile Ife.
LasgiiDi who has been bursting local speakers in his local underground scene in Dallas, Texas got recognized by MTV and described Lasgiidi as; “A formidable stage performer whose versatility and impeccable lyrical wittiness will definitely take him places.” Now that he is back on home soil, LasgiiDi’s new song, LOGO engineered and produced by GIGGZ, takes an upbeat approach at captivating its listeners to his distinct sound and take on Afrocentric-pop buttressed with world class audio visuals.
He’s musical influences range from Fela to his friend Olamide with a work ethic stronger than no other. LasGiiDi was the hardest and most consistent worker in the industry in 2015.
