Etuk draws inspiration from afrobeat, highlife, ekombi and the jazz greats. He adds that the sounds of the elements – water, wind and fire – inspire him, which is why he calls his music ‘Earth Music’. His compositions reflect his heritage and life philosophy of goodwill, peace and love to humanity.
