Creating this body of work was a journey for Cuppy, who explains “I went back to my roots, where I am from; Epe (a small Town just outside of Lagos, Nigeria) and mixed with the locals, I visited my family’s farm and recorded lots of ambient and animal sounds. If you listen very carefully you can hear these in each track”.

It’s about the fact that I was able to focus and actually achieve my dream of having an album. So honestly, I’m already happy regardless of what happens. Nonetheless, I encourage everyone to join this journey and I hope they enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed making this album.”

[Album] Laycon – “I Am Laycon” (The Original Soundtrack) Album 18

Laycon comes through with “I AM LAYCON” album, A connection to his debut project- Who Is Laycon The EP?

Multi-talented rapper, Laycon drops his sophomore album titled “I Am Laycon“. A project which houses 10 track with 2 guest acts, that serves as a follow up to his debut album- ‘Shall we Begin..‘

Laycon is a Lagos born and bred artiste who is signed to Fierce Nation entertainment. Laycon started out his musical journey very early, developing his art from Secondary school. He got introduced to Hiphop and rap music and later on crossed over to other genres of music. He says about his musical style “I diversify my creativity as much as I can and strive to get more versatile. I can rap and I can sing. I also play some music instruments so I’m a mixture of everything“.

Laycon’s consistency and creativity was noticed by several record labels and in late 2018 he signed to Fierce Nation, a budding record label known for their positive work with several young, talented Nigerian creatives. In the second half of 2019, Laycon put out two weekly visual project, titled “Any Given Monday I & II” which were compliments to his first label single release ‘Fierce’ featuring Chinko Ekun & Reminisce.

Laycon kicked off 2020 with his much anticipated “Who Is Laycon” EP, released on April 2020. He won the Nigerian Big Brother TV show in 2020 and also starred in his own reality show ‘I Am Laycon’, which became the most streamed show on the Showmax platform.

Relaying an array of experiences through expressive lyricism, the project soundtracks a rising star’s journey. While “Underrate” is a peppy Afrobeats jam celebrating progress, Laycon’s versatility shines through on the airy, confessional “Monrovia Hf-531” and the trap-leaning “Love and Light”.

[Album] D’Banj – “Stress Free” (Chapter One)

[Album] D’Banj – “Stress Free” (Chapter One) 20

It’s finally here, The Stress Free Album (Chapter One) by legendary singer, D’Banj.

Nigerian Award-winning Entertainer, D’Banj releases a new project titled “Stress Free” (Chapter One). This album comes with a visual for his Stress Free track.

According to Apple Music, Nigerian Afro star D’Banj emerged in 2005 with his debut album, No Long Thing, which he released in conjunction with business partner/producer Don Jazzy on their Mo’Hits label.

Born Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo in 1980 in the Nigerian city of Zaria, D’Banj learned how to play the harmonica as a teenager in honor of his older brother, who died in a plane crash at the age of 17. His love for music eventually led him into a partnership with Don Jazzy, a producer he met in London with whom he would later return to Lagos and begin his recording career.

Led by the single “Tongolo,” No Long Thing presented a slick mix of urban dance pop and Afropop with which D’Banj would find great success over the next several years. As an entrepreneur, he and Jazzy signed other up-and-coming Nigerian pop acts to their label and, in 2007, formed the collective Mo’Hits All-Stars, releasing a handful of hit singles featuring D’Banj as its star act.

In 2010, D’Banj began collaborating with American artists like Snoop Dogg and, in 2011, signed a deal with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music label. That same year, D’Banj scored a major hit with his single “Oliver Twist,” which topped a number of African charts and fared well in the U.K. and Europe as well. Prior to dissolving his partnership with Jazzy, D’Banj began working on a massive compilation album which would eventually come out on his new venture, DB Records. Titled D’Kings Men, the album was not a proper D’Banj solo release though he was heavily featured on numerous singles alongside numerous African artists and American guests like Big Sean and Kanye West. A pair of 2015 singles — “Feeling the Nigga” and “Frosh” — found D’Banj collaborating with Akon as his music continued to veer more toward an urban hip-hop sound. The songs were also featured on the visual EP, An Epic Journey, which D’Banj released song-by-song as a series of videos. Two years later, he returned with the album, King Don Come.

Today 1st of October, 2021, He returns with a new album titled “Stress Free” (Chapter One).
