When Fabio Tedde tempted us; myself, filmmaker Fred Kuwornu and Stefania Omorodion to an adventure into Kings Cross after the successful launch of Diversity Matters Awareness Week last Monday – there was little to suggest we’d run into this amazing talent gracing the piano well after midnight…
Thankfully I had my camera in my bag to capture Efe Ikeuseu on free-styling on the piano. However not satisfied with just uploading a video, I contacted the young pianist through Fabio Tedde – also an amazing self-taught pianist, and spent an afternoon hanging out with the 21yr old Senegal-born-France-raised raw talent know as FX (Francois Xavier)… aka The Wizz Kid!

Efe often plays on the piano donated by Elton John in Kings Cross St Pancras station. Find out more on Global Public Pianos – a community of pianists who play “street pianos/free pianos” in London and around the world!
Special thanks to FX, Piano Man, Fabio Tedde, Fred Kuwornu and Stefania Omorodion for the amazing experience and great company… Thank you you FX for the opportunity to share your story… There’s more to come!
