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!

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!

Nomadic Wax head-honcho Magee McIlvaine recently took a trip to Zimbabwe to shine some light on the local artists and hip hop scene in the capital Harare, otherwise known as H-Town. He has put together a brilliant mini-documentary from the footage he filmed which focuses on some of the foremost MC’s in the country and the struggles they face.

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!
