Lagbaja’s real face and his veiled face
The Nigerian highlife singer, originally known as Bisade Ologunde, is known to cover his face with a traditional mask while on stage and even in his music videos, which according to him is a symbol for the faceless and the voiceless.
The singer whose music is influenced by traditional Yoruba music and Jazz, seems to have had his days of secrecy blown over by the Nollywood actor.
Aremu Afolayan who shared a photo revealing Lagbaja’s face, wrote:
However, this is not the first real photo of Lagbaja.
The above photo of Lagbaja first surfaced in 2012. The picture was released by sources close to Lagbaja who claim he masked his face after his family went against his career choice.
He masked himself because of his family’s opposition to his career and to further protect his family’s image in the church.
A source said he is the son of a baptist deacon and a former choir member at his church in Ilorin, Kwara state.
Take a closer look at the above picture. Do you think this is the real face of Lagbaja.
