#171 - Ify Adenuga (Greatest Music of All Time) *



Ify Adenuga has a conversation with Tom about growing up in Nigeria during the Biafran Civil War, moving to Britain, and then taking a risk by retraining at University whilst also working and bringing up her kids. Her efforts to provide a happy and free environment for her children have helped result in enormous success for them: they are the iconic rappers, Skepta and JME, the Apple Music radio presenter, Julie Adenuga and the illustrator, Jason Adenuga. Ify's fascinating new book, Endless Fortune, tells her amazing story. NB - This episode was originally recorded as part of Tom's Greatest Music of All Time Podcast, which organically evolved from its inception in early 2020, from a focus on the discussion of music to also exploring pop culture, comedy, entertainment, entrepreneurship, philosophy, science, politics and current affairs commentary. It was renamed as the Tom Cridland Podcast in January 2023.
