Orí, is a Yoruba metaphysical concept. Literally meaning "head," The Yoruba believe that every human being was born with a destiny or purpose (ori) and was called to Earth to discover and fulfil that purpose. In the words of Temitope Adefarakan: "it is 'the essence of human personality which rules, controls and guides the life and activities of the person' (Balogun 2007, 118). Before our birth, while we are still in the realm of spirit, we choose our 'head' and, with it, the course of our worldly existence." This new bi-monthly format by DJ, Presenter, Producer and Oroko Radio co-founder Kikelomo is an expression of self - a sonic journal noting the sounds and influences in her worldly existence.


Kikelomo is a critically acclaimed British-Nigerian DJ, Presenter, Curator and Host, as well as a co-founder of Oroko Radio. Since starting out in September 2017, Kikelomo has experienced an explosive growth, playing across multiple continents alongside industry heavyweights, from DJ Stingray to Skepta. She has launched t-shirts in collaboration with Adidas and Keep Hush,  played and regularly hosts at Boiler Room, as well as continuing to showcase her sound at events like Splash! Festival, Fusion Festival, opening the internationally renowned CTM Festival at Berlin’s prestigious Berghain/Panorama Bar, in addition to being given the honour of playing to a crowd of 100,000+ people at the Brandenburger Tor national monument, broadcast on national television to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Through dedicated festivals, workshops and one-on-one mentoring, Kikelomo has a wealth of experience establishing programs in her resident city Berlin that equip marginalised identities with the skills and confidence to progress their careers, working together with support from the likes of Musicboard Berlin, Adidas, Zalando, Jagermeister and more.
