Keziah Jones

Keziah Jones (born Olufemi Sanyaolu on January 10, 1968 in Lagos, Nigeria) is a Nigerian singer-songwriter and guitarist. 

He describes his musical style as "Blufunk", which is a fusion between raw blues elements and hard, edgy funk rhythms. 
Also his Nigerian roots in Yoruba music and soul music can be considered a major influence on his sound.
He is known for his distinctive style of guitar playing, including his percussive right-hand technique which is similar to a bass guitarist's slapping technique. 
Keziah often cites Fela Kuti and Jimi Hendrix along with Micheal Jackson as important influences.
Keziah Jones also paints and writes poetry. He’s a talented photographer and he produces short films.
