Funke Akindele, Eniola Badmus, Chioma Akpotha and Bimbo Thomas brings out their rapper aura on “Askamaya Anthem” soundtrack for their ‘Omo Ghetto (The Saga)’ movie

Published

If you are like me and you thought Funke Akindele, Eniola Badmus, Chioma Akpotha and Bimbo Thomas, these women only know how to release off the charts blockbuster movies for the English and Yoruba sector of Nollywood, then it is hightime we changed our perspective.

‘Omo Ghetto (The Saga)’ will be available in all cinemas on the 25th of December but the original soundtrack for the movie — “Askamaya Anthem” — has been released and it features the stars of the movie in Funke Akindele, Eniola Badmus, Chioma Akpotha and Bimbo Thomas.

“Askamaya Anthem” is a Hip-Hop/Rap song which is sung in indigenous languages of Yoruba for Funke Akindele, Eniola Badmus and Bimbo Thomas verses while the last verse of the song by Chioma Akpotha was done in Igbo.

From the lyrics of the song, two things are clear and made to standout about the movie – action and violence – are inevitable from the main characters or as Bimbo Thomas said in her verse “woro si woro”, literally meaning in English — an eye for eye — so the movie (which trailer is out already) should be expected to be filled with a lot of action thriller and drama, enough to go round.

“Askama Anthem” is produced by Puffy Tee while the music video is directed by JJC Skillz while the female stars – Funke Akindele, Eniola Badmus, Chioma Akpotha and Bimbo Thomas delivers their bars so effortlessly, one would have thought they were rappers themselves.

Vector and MI have an upcoming collaboration on the way, titled ‘Crown of Clay’

Published

on

Finally, every Hip-Hop and Rap fan in Nigeria get what they have been waiting on for a very long time, a collaboration between two of Africa’s most respected rap figures, Vector “tha Viper” and “Mr Incredible, ‘MI’ Abaga”. They’re to work together on the collaboration titled—Crown of Clay.

MI and Vector as we know had their almost a decade long infamous feud which resulted in a lot of name callings, insults, unnecessary charter, indirect subs and most importantly – the diss tracks (both from a personal point of view and collectively from their individual cliques).

The year 2020 though brought an end to their beef when Alcoholic brand—Hennesy VSOP —organised for the artistes to meet and reconcile amicably through the YouTube series – ‘The Conversation by Hennessy artistry’ – much to the delight of fans (or maybe not, because those diss tracks were amazingly fire and quite engaging I am not even going to lie *laughing emoji*). And few months later, we are meant to enjoy two of Nigeria’s most lyrical and commercially successful rappers on a track. Wow!

Although not much detail is known as to the collaboration—Crown of Clay, whether it is going to be just a single, or eventually turn out to be a project – EP, mixtape or album – but we know it will soon come according to MI while vector simply tells fans to make sure they turn on post notifications; for sure, this is a must follow-up story and fans will be eager to know how it eventually turns out.

If there is one thing we have learnt from Ric Hassani since making his debut, it is that he is not afraid to voice his emotions, even if it means being literal, thinking out loud, as in the case of recent and promotional single for his sophomore album – ‘Thunder Fire You’.

The Prince I Became judging from the tracklist boasts to be genre mixing, infusing Ric Hassani’s staple – R&B and Pop – while also creating space for Gospel, recruiting some of gospel’s finest in Calledout Music and Frank Edwards on ‘Victory Belongs To Jesus’.

What to expect from The Prince I Became? Excellent vocals and storytelling as always, the classic Ric Hassani style while also banking on him to give us some shake body jam like ‘Do Lai Dat’ featuring Kuami Eugene. From the tracklist, we can also tell the album is a flurry of emotions, mostly of love while the latter part of the album, especially the last three songs on it, Ric Hassani turns our attention to the Lord, Jesus Christ, spreading the gospel in his own little way.
