Iba (Homage) ... Femi Koya & Pops Mohamed

Femi Koya jams with Pops Mohamed in studio on the "iStart2 Show". Femi talks us through his new CD, named Iba (Homage):' I decided to create a sound from both countries - South Africa and Nigeria, and call it World Afrobeat. The Album is about paying homage to the living legends and the African soil."

He also chats to us about migrancy issues and what it is like to be a Nigerian living in South Africa. Femi also shares his views on the long road to artistic sustainability.
