Nigerian street drummer's dreams of stardom

Nigerian percussionist Sunday Aderoyiju dreams of becoming one of his country's leading musicians but he does not have the funds to upgrade his instruments and perform in proper concerts.

So he plays the popular Yoruba genre Fuji with a three-man band on the streets of Lagos.

Crowds usually gather to watch and donate some money in appreciation.

BBC Africa's Sam Olukoya met him at one of his roadside gigs.
