85 To Africa is said to be a culmination of events that Jidenna has faced since the release of his debut album The Chief back in 2017. For starters, Jidenna was ordered to leave his rental home after the owner foreclosed (due to unmentioned issues) without notifying. With a U.S. tour approaching consecutively to his eviction, soon after Jidenna found himself without a home to return to.

The eye-opening shift in his life created the foundation for 85 To Africa.

Jidenna teases what’s to come with singles “Sufi Woman” and a visual for “Tribe,” which opens the floodgates to 85 To Africa. However, he does not stop there.

To bring the album to life, Jidenna will also be embarking on a 33-city tour kicking off in Sacramento, California, and closing November 16th in Los Angeles, California.
