Studio Grindin'

After I dropped the single "Africa" in 2008 which featured Nigerian R&B singer Chrest, I haven't really recorded any other song with that type of musical progression. Anyway, that's about to change folks!....I've been working with E-twinz on a new single titled "Kosi Ohun Tuntun," which means"Nothing's new". And I got my homie Tupengo on the hook. It's most likely going to be a banger. However, I'll let the fans decide when it eventually drops. Also, Teck and I have been trying to wrap up the Afro-beat remix for "Raw African Poetry"...crazy sounds coming your way! Stay tuned!

Shout Out To HYPE Magazine!

Finally got a copy of the Freedom Day Issue of South Africa's No.1 Hiphop mag - HYPE! Thanks to my homie Duncan Sodala (CEO, SlamDunk Records). While flipping through the pages of the mag; apart from Naycha's interview on pages 18/19 where he talked about our collab, I also noticed that one of the tracks off of my RapLogic EP titled "Raw African Poetry" was also mentioned on page 56. What more can I say?....hard work pays off! I also like the fact that Hype Magazine showcase other African talents outside SA. Big ups to HYPE!

“Being A Celebrity Is Good, But Being An Artiste Is Better”

The entertainment industry in Nigeria is arguably one of the biggest in Sub-Saharan Africa, considering the large number of talents emerging almost every day from this side of the continent. And it’s really growing at a very fast pace too. However, to be candid, I think a lot of artistes these days now pay more primacy to the glamour and glitz, and have less interest for the art. Well I belong to the school of thought that believes every artiste has the freedom to make art. After all the root word in "Artiste" is "ART". The fact that you shoot a video worth millions of naira or you’re signed to a major record label, and have a manager that handles your bookings/promotions doesn’t entirely make you a professional artiste. The bottom line is; creativity and good packaging should go hand in hand.  Just a thought!
