Lamboginny releases Food Is Ready
A Nigerian Afro-Dancehall musician based in the United States, Yinka Lawanson, who is professionally known as Lamboginny, has released his new body of work titled Food Is Ready.
The project, which is his second studio album, was inspired by his food adventures with his wife Ling on their food and lifestyle channel, Ling & Lamb.
Comprising 11 tracks, the collection is a follow up to his 2017 debut album, entitled Saving All Lives Together (S.A.L.T), a prison reform programme in line with the 2030 Agenda of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by United Nations.
The album carries an array of rhythmical dance, including Afrobeats, dancehall, highlife and amapiano. It dwells on themes of joy, love, gratitude and harmony. The singles, Move and Sak Pase (Remix), which feature Haitian artiste, Tony Mix, preceded the album’s release.
On the project, the singer, who is also a social crusader, said: “Music is the only way I can express the joy I feel after eating all of these amazing foods. I hope these songs bring joy to millions across the world and inspire people to try foods from other cultures.
“Food Is Ready is not just an album but also music with a mission. The project is a reflection of joy and happiness felt after trying different meals from America, the Philippines, Jamaica, Haiti, India, Italy and so on. I used delicacies from around the world as a point of departure.
“Our goal is to provide free meals to homeless and economically disadvantaged people and families around the world through an initiative I co-founded with Ling. We will be partnering with soup kitchens, food programmes, and other businesses/organisations to achieve our goal of feeding one million people.”
Prior to the release of the album, the singer trended on Google after mainstream Indian publications like India Times, India Today, The Tribune, and Hindustan Times covered the video of him trying Indian food for the first time alongside his wife, Ling.
