“With connections to Nigeria, Wisconsin and Boston, Jidenna began developing his artistry in the Bay Area, performing in East Palo Alto and Oakland and frequenting popular East Bay music venue the New Parish. While performing at a masquerade ball in Oakland, he met Janelle Monáe and was later signed to her Wonderland Records label.”
