USA based Nigerian Afro-beat Artist T-ME Singsong releases his first body of work titled Take II. According to T-ME, this is a second opportunity for him to fulfill his dreams through music and he is going to make the most of it.
The much anticipated Take II features an impressive list of collaborations that includes Vector, Junior boy, Afrorolls, Mr. Duke, and Rilo. The album is surely going to leave you astonished.
Afrorolls reminds us of the Great Fela Anikulapo Kuti in this highly spiritual new single titled Ire. This is Afrobeat in the purest form. Ire means blessings, it is a powerful prayer song asking chi for blessings, according to Afrorolls we all need grace and blessings from Oluwa to make day to day progress.
Ire is Dedicated to all the young people trying hard to find their way through the hardship of this country. People find themselves in extreme conditions having crossed the boarders into Foreign lands for greener pastures. When I wake up in the morning these are all my prayer points, I just decided to put them all in a song, I pray for Ire (Blessings), for Ife (love), for success, good kids, nice houses, divine favor, and good vibes.
“Ki ire ko ya lo odo mi, ki Iyanu ya lo odo mi Make I get some girls for my hood, wey dey feel all my gbedu , Make Oyinbo dey fell all my tunes”
“This is a prayer for blessings, divine favor, and acceptance,” Afrorolls says.
The song produced by Killertunes also has a political side to it, it features samples from what sounds like the voice of Olusegun Obasanjo, a war veteran and former two-time president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The sample sees him endorsing Dele Momodu’s presidential candidacy saying he is the most qualified young person in Nigeria. This vocal sample on this song is mind-blowing and can have so many meanings. It will be interesting to ask Afrorolls or Killertunes why the choice of that sample. Killertunes is also responsible for hits like Manya by Wizkid and Yeba by Kiss daniel.
Afrorolls has come through again, this time with the much awaited official video to his banging single “Alasiko”. The video is once again directed by Mazi Ifeanyi who has been involved in a number of top-notch videos this year.
The title of the song “Alasiko lo laye” means a patient man owns the world. According to Afrorolls, he has had to endure some trying times and be very patient for his time to come. Right now, he aims to share his inspiring story to let the world know how being patient has led him to having a happy life. A good woman, good children, good houses and cars will come to you if only you can wait for your time.
Afrorolls releases behind the scene visuals to his much anticipated video “Alasiko”. The song which has already created a lot of buzz around the entertainment circles in Indiana is now getting it’s own visuals. This is a huge promotional move for something that is already a main stay on people’s playlists.
Once again, the visuals and the settings of the video look super nice and we anticipate that the final outcome of the video will be one to behold. Congratulations to Afrorolls on what seems to be his first ever video release.
The video was scripted and directed by Mazi Ifeanyi while Threshold productions shot it.
