WASIU NEW RELEASE – “MTLIEN”
The Montreal native Wasiu who loved to be referred to as MTLien has given an emphatic nod to OutKast’s ATLiens album. He’s discussed the homage when he dropped his MTLiens album, but really, the whole project was an ode to the outcast persona Wasiu inherited growing up. “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”. A man of different shades and affiliation has done more than well in keeping is fans glued. Listen to his new release below.
