Wasiu explores his complicated multicultural, multinational identity on “MTLien.”
“Basically this record is me explaining why I relate to Outkast’s ATLiens album so much,” Wasiu told Mass Appeal. “Being Half Nigerian, Half Haitian, neither community really accepted me because I’m only half. My mother’s a Christian while my father’s Muslim. Both sides kept telling me the other side is wrong, yet I’ve learned about both.”
“MTLien” is co-produced by Tommy Kruise and Dear Lola.
