    Additional Skills

    Operatic to a very high standard, and jazz singing. Baritone.

    Short description of my voice

    Baritone timbre. Professional singer, doing a Paul Robeson play, though not his deep register! Nigerian, British-public-school educated, so a unique voice - never fully British, but the Yoruba is there waiting to surface when required. Ideal to take over from the fake African voices one hears too often in BBC drama.
