We already know that when Papyfire announces new music, he means good music. He is like Virgil van Dijk, the surprise champion of the game, that is why I believe that the title of the album “The Champ” does, in fact, suit the project.

The project has a heavy TRAP feel but also comprises songs with an afrobeat vibe Afrobeat. What I particularly love about the album is how samples are used to convey different messages, some of which sound really inspirational.


“Firetape is a series of many projects we will be put out moving forward, it’s a place were I express my deepest imaginations and my immediate reality. My team called this tape “The Champ” based on their experience grinding and winning with me every day, I never say NO to a challenge. We all have to constantly strive to be Champions, that’s literally the only way to improve our industry and society as a whole. The Champ is one of many fire tapes to come, we are also releasing some afrobeat, dancehall and other genres including another EP before the end of the year. As long as I have a voice, you will always hear from the champ”.

I recommend you listen to it and also leave a comment below.

Papyfire don come again o ..

This is a highly infectious vibe . Papyfire Jumps on SARZ new beat titled “ Spiritual Riddim ” . Sarz is regarded in many quarters as Nigeria’s NO. 1 producer.

How do you even question that with a beat as banging as this ?

Papyfire does extraordinarily well in matching the beat drum for drum ; pace for pace ; and fire for fire . This Papyfire Jam is definitely my No. 1 jam for 2019 at the moment, it won’t take long for it to be your No.1.  I will place a bet with my money .

I am one of those people that listen to music not just for it’s value today but also what it may become in future. Speaking of the future, I can confidently say Papyfire is laying his bed for the future.

“ Don’t speed ”  is off his E.P – I am Music and it’s one of my favorite songs at the moment. I can’t listen to this Jam alone , it would be inconsiderate and i would be considered greedy if i did so.  I urge you to Join in, plug your head sets and legooo !!
