Sekouba Diakite is an Ivorian reggae musician. In the tradition of rootsy reggae from the 70s, Sekouba combines an eclectic mix of traditional West African rhythms known as Bolomba, using djembe drums and balafons. His potent lyrics, heavy ideas, and delicate voice are laced in his music in six different languages: Mandingo, French, English, Malinke, Bambara, and Dioula. He humbly has graced stages around the globe with generous performances, including Israel, Germany, Switzerland, Mali, Senegal, Burkina Faso, Cote d’Ivoire.

After being enriched into the roots of the Bolomba style in The Gambia, the young Sekouba came alive with the West African sounds of the Mandinka. Sekouba’s desire to sing came naturally but it was never a reality without the musical influence of his brother, Ismael Isaac. Sekouba’s other musical influences include, Lucky Dube, Alpha Blondy, and Bob Marley.

Sekouba’s uplifting and heartening lyrics enliven audiences with spiritual liberation and African consciousness. His debut album “I’m So Glad” was self-produced in New York and arranged by Oscar Ankou. Sekouba’s sophomore album in 2010 “Sejo” was co-produced by Sidney Mills, Grammy award-winning reggae artist and keyboard player for the legendary band Steel Pulse. The album includes outstanding, liberal tracks like “Mandela,” featuring Bob Marley’s guitarist Junior Marvin from The Wailers. “Mandela” is a sharp and arousing tribute to former President of South Africa Nelson Mandela, and has been well-received by international fans.

Sekouba and his band Bolumba Stylee have decorated the nation with groovy, soulful performances at venues and festivals such as Fête de la Musique in Mali; SummerStage in New York City, alongside Israeli artist Idan Raichel; NJPAC SummerStage; New Haven Music Festival; Brooklyn’s International African Arts Festival; S.O.B.’s; Shrine World Music Venue; and many more. Sekouba’s music is inspired by a conglomerate of modern day music, and the ancestral dialogue passed down to him as a descendant of a long line of griots. In one show, Sekouba’s listeners share in a universal experience.

He received his Bachelors of Science in Environmental Science from City University of New York before eventually becoming a System Safety Specialist with the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) where he is currently employed.


As most immigrants, he came to the States to build a career and future for himself and his family. He arrived in the states in the early 1990s and by working tirelessly, he was able to own his first property in only six years later. Because he understood the struggles of immigrants moving to a new country and learning new surroundings, he decided to help new immigrants by providing them a place to stay or hosting them while they settled in this country. Due to his role in the community as a provider for those in need, he became lovingly called “Daddy Rich” by family and friends.

Iyasere has extensive work community service and civic engagement, reflected in thirteen years of consistent dedication as an organizing member of the Nigerian Independence Day Parade, the first and longest running parade in the city which has been in existence for over 20 years.

Iyasere is also a one-time vice president of the Nigerian Unique Club of New York and the former president of African Club, Bronx Community College among many accomplishments and feats. He was also the 2014 Community Leadership Award winner by the 3G Media in NY.


Apart from his community work, Iyasere is also an entrepreneur and businessman whose deep love for music and dance inspired him to start his own company DaddyRich Productions, which brings quality concerts and events to the diverse audiences. With DaddyRich Productions, he has brought quality artists and musicians from around the world to perform in New York City to contribute to the rich cultural tapestry and inform the larger NYC community about musical acts from Africa.


Iyasere continues to remain driven and active in his own Nigerian community and more importantly, remains engaged in the larger African and New York City communities.
