Sarz x Lojay – “Tonongo” 1

SARZ AND LOJAY RELEASE BRAND NEW SINGLE TITLED ‘TONONGO’, ALSO RELEASES A MUST-SEE VISUAL SINGLE TAKEN FROM FORTHCOMING COLLABORATIVE EP.

One of the fastest-rising music acts to come onto the Afro-Fusion scene, with his unmistakable tone and dextrous lyrical delivery, singer, songwriter and producer Lojay has teamed up with fellow Lagos native, the prolific and internationally renowned, super-producer Sarz on their brand-new single ‘Tonongo’ (released via Sony Music Entertainment and Metallic Music).

Showcasing Lojay’s sublime vocals alongside Sarz’s slick production which blends contemporary Afrobeats with urgent Hip-Hop and sensual R&B sounds – and has established him as the go-to producer for heavyweight acts in Nigeria and across the globe such as Wizkid, Burna Boy, Skepta, Drake and Beyoncé) – ‘Tonongo’ is assisted by a must-see visual inspired by Lojay’s own experience of falling in love with a dancer. The single is taken from a forthcoming collaborative EP from the dynamic duo.

Speaking on ‘Tonongo’, Lojay said:

’Tonongo’ is about expressing the depth of emotion that lies beyond the surface. The single was inspired by the atmosphere of a strip club – moody and dark – a fitting ode to the dancer the song was written about. I enjoy the duality of the song. It ended up making itself and that’s the beauty of it, the beauty of music. It’s so spiritual. I’m just a vessel. I hope people relate to it and find beauty in it.”

With a musical style largely indicative of his Yoruba roots, Lojay’s previous releases included ‘Ariel’ in 2019 and 2020’s ‘Ogogoro’. The upcoming EP was borne out of Lojay’s determination to persevere through his own dark times during the start of the pandemic last year. Already a huge Sarz fan, after some reflection he decided to reach out for an introduction which led to a face to face meeting between the two acts. Despite Lojay hoping to collaborate on one song, Sarz decided that they would work on an EP together and a 3 month-long boot-camp in Lagos ensued.

Helmed by the explosive ‘Tonongo’ and its hypnotic visual, the upcoming EP is a reflection on heartbreak and vulnerability, with a sonic journey that will not only make you get up and move but will redefine the parameters of Afro-Fusion sounds and aesthetics. Enjoy!

Produced by Zeffir, ‘Hazy’  takes you on a long soul-soothing ride that allows your body and mind to experience Nissa’s vocals singing about how relationships can sometimes leave you undone. The crooner describes the song as “a heartfelt song that stems from a one-sided relationship, in which I felt like I was devoting more effort into helping someone flourish in all aspects of their lives while I was slowing down my own growth. Sometimes to love yourself, means to leave someone else”

Ripe and layered with emotion and on the verge of giving up on relationships, ‘Hazy’ heralds Nissa’s frustrations, sadness, disappointments and all the downsides of a one-sided relationship in this line “…I’m fed up, don’t want no loving…I’ve been giving all my energy”, from a story told in such a heartfelt manner, it leaves you in a sweet state of emotional vulnerability.

Nissa has always had an intrinsic understanding of her strength as an artist, especially after she realised that words in her heart can turn into a song on paper; therefore it comes as no surprise that she tells her story in such a riveting way. A truly gifted songwriter whose passion for songwriting was unveiled at the age of 8, Nissa’s secret lies in the great influence of her Creole culture on her vocal style which has always been eclectic and deeply rooted in her being.
