#112 | All Eyez On Me-nooth: Dafe Orugbo from Tebi Rex

Maynooth holds a special place in the heart of this show. Two of the core crew – Éimear and Peadar – are Maynooth graduates, and our most popular episode to date is a sensational live show at the Maynooth Students’ Union featuring a difficult rooster.

Today we’re considering another aspect of that university’s gift to the world – specifically, its gift to Irish hip hop. Tebi Rex, one of Ireland’s most exciting hip hop groups, formed in the hallowed halls of the Big Kildare Priest Factory and on today’s episode, Darach, Gearóidín and Peadar are joined by Dafe Orugbo, one half of the dynamic duo. Dafe tells the gang about how Gaeilge played a role in the band forming. He has plenty to say about the world within the Maynooth campus as well as their influences, his love of Kate Nash, the terror of writing sexy songs that your Mam might hear… and his favourite Irish word.

Tebi Rex’s new album “The Young Will Eat The Old” is out now.
