Baloji is a poet, musician and director. He also acts as creative director for brands and on special projects (concepts, art direction) and has modelled for Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Kris Van Assche and Edun+Diesel.

Baloji means “man of science” in Swahili, but during the colonial period, that meaning shifted as a result of Christian evangelization, to signify “man of the occult sciences and sorcery”.

His second album Avenue Kaniama, to be released in March 2018, is accompanied by a short film of the same name. Baloji’s acting projects have included roles in a number of films with directors as diverse as Andrew Dosunmu (Nigeria), Michael Roskam (Belgium), Everaldo Gout (Mexico),Thomas Vincent (France) and Nigel Thilmon (USA).

Baloji performs at Omeara, 29 March.
