Nigerian-born American singer, JIDENNA Theodore Mobisson who is in the country for a homecoming tour has said that his father always wanted him to be an engineer
Speaking to Bella-Naija, the ‘Classic Man’ crooner, said that he initially studied Sound Engineering at Stanford University before switching to Ritualistic Arts, knowing that “Stanford had a ‘million-dollar studio which at the time was not typical in schools.”
Jidenna who is signed to Wondaland Records however, later switched courses.
“So what I wanted to study was the art of rituals – Why do people paint their face before performances, why do we brush our teeth, why do we sing/dance and what does it do to our minds and how do you do this on a larger scale,” said Jidenna

The artiste also disclosed that his homecoming would be detailed in a documentary.
“It’s also about me going to where I grew up Enugu,” said Jidenna.
“Even though I’m from Imo State but Enugu was where my entire perspective was shaped.
As a young child seeing the world, Enugu is where I remember.
I think the documentary will focus on me coming home and enjoying the experiences.
Going down memory lane and I’m sure new memories will be created.”
