first_img Facebook News Rotimi On Performing At ESSENCE Fest, Growing Up African-American & More The Nigerian-American singer and actor sat down with the Recording Academy to talk about what inspired his latest album, ‘Walk With Me’Jennifer Velez GRAMMYs Jul 8, 2019 – 11:04 am In 2015, Rotimi stepped into the New Orleans Superdome for the first time to experience the magic of ESSENCE Fest. Four years later, in 2019, the “Love Riddim” singer returned to the celebration as a performer, something he said was spoken into existence.”Last year me and my manager had a conversation and I said, ‘Listen, I’m going to be on the [ESSENCE] mainstage this year. 365 days later, we did it,” Rotimi told the Recording Academy at the 25th annual ESSENCE Fest.

The singer said he really hit home with its follow-up, the recently released Walk With Me, a project he worked hard for, putting in hours in the studio after filming on set.”Walk With Me is the first time I actually felt like I was giving myself as an artist, and personally I feel like with everything else I have going on I wanted to show people that this is really what I do,” he said. “I wanted people to understand who Rotimi is, who Rotimi was before, who I want to be and just understand my growth and the journey and my passion for what I do.”Part of why the album felt like such a representation of him is because it embodies beats of his African roots, something he said was very present growing up Nigerian-American. “I grew up with a lot of Fela Kuti and I grew up with Bob Marley,” he said of his musical roots. “But I also grew up with Carl Thomas and Genuine and Usher, so there was a genuine mixture of who I am and what I’ve grown up to listen to. The actual Walk With Me project was a mixture of influences of Akon and Craig David.”Mumu Fresh On What She Learned From Working With The Roots, Rhyming & Morelast_img read more
