Libation - Segun Fayase

My name is Segs Fayase and I have been teaching ESOL at ELATT for over 10 years. I am also a music artist by the name of Segge Dan where I fuse uplifting Hip Hop, soulful melodies and inspirational lyrics.

I would like to submit a song/ video for the Black Lives Matter themed Student Celebration.

The song is called ‘Libation’ and features UK soul legend, Omar. It is off my first album ‘Black Brittanyaa Windrush Vol 2’.

Libation is the ancient African ritual of pouring out liquid (normally alcoholic spirits) to honour the ancestors. The song lays homage to the hardship of the Windrush Generation who came in the 50’s and 60’s.

In this global support of Black Lives Matter, this song is a timely reminder to celebrate the lives of Black pioneers from yesteryear.
