Afrobeat-themed EP in the Works!

Fela is one of the conscious artistes that influenced my musical direction. Apparently the King of Afrobeat is also inspiring my new project with Canadian based Nigerian producer, Teck-Zilla.

Working on a new EP which is yet to be titled, and it will include 6 great songs plus an instrumental track featuring a saxophonist. Apart from the likes of Khaligraph (Kenya), Dominant-1 (Malawi), The Holstar (Zambia) and Raiza Biza (Rwanda), whom all featured on Raw African Poetry 2.0 (a bonus track on the album), I have also collaborated with Tupengo on a song which will be featured on the project. Also expect vocals from soul/r n b artist, Itunu Pepper. Yeah, I also intend doing a song for the ladies. *winks*

This Afrobeat themed EP is going to be a reflection of my culture and my society at large. The topics are thought provoking - no joking! Teck-Zilla's hard-hitting Afrocentric beats is going to be a breathe of fresh air, production-wise. Experimenting with indigenous sounds this time around, and we will be showcasing skill and versatility.

There is no need to talk too much, in due time, people will figure it out. The music will speak for itself. Anticipate!
