JayKAy, 77 - Afrobeat musician from Nigeria

Today I walked for almost two hours without meeting anyone to photograph. It was cold, rainy, and I even questioned myself why I bother to do this blog. Then, on a street corner close to Peckham, I found my answer. Jay Kay used to play the drums in a band producing similar tunes to the great Fela Kuti. Looking at his outfit, his musician background didn't surprise me. Unfortunately Jay Kay had to retire a few years ago after suffering a stroke, but I can confirm that his ability to spread joy amongst people was absolutely still there. He promised not to forget me, and I will certainly not forget him, so hopefully we'll meet again soon.
