Swedish DJ/producer collective Mash Up International is back with the single “Killa Wine” ft. Nigerian/American/Naptown singer Teeklef!
This flirtatious and sweet Afropop song with the aggressive title “Killa Wine” is the result of Mash Up International discovering the talented artist Teeklef via Spotify.
Teeklef who was on tour recently is set to release his project which he describes as a revelation of the ordeal he passed through in the hands of his ex wife. “I am finally ready to tell the world what i passed through in the last year. It was a difficult journey and i am glad it is finally over”, Teeklef said .
Teeklef serves us the visuals to his newest single titled want it. The USA based Nigerian star who just dropped his Afro-pop project after having completed a tour to several countries is expected to reach his peak this year. I am really excited for Teeklef, it’s been a long time coming and things seem to be looking up for him.
Want it is a dope single featuring sample vocals from Tuface’s hit single “ For instance ”. The video is very befitting of the song.
Nigeria-raised, Indianapolis-based R&B artist Teeklef released the AfroPop EP on April 26th. Following Singles ‘Calling’ and ‘Want It’, the singer/producer has been on a world tour promoting his newest project. Entitled Afropop, the EP embraces the elements of Afrobeat and pop music that have influenced Teeklef’s process.
In 2018, following a long-awaited return trip to his birthplace of Lagos, Nigeria, Teeklef returned to the studio energized. He began writing and recording what would be the beginning of a series of EPs, which reflect the diversity of cultures that make up Teeklef as a musician and as a human.
‘Calling’, a song that flows from memories of driving the streets of Lagos at night, starts the EP. ‘Feel Like’ expresses his relationship with the hometown he has
been away from for years. ‘Want It’, the 3rd single, brings a turn in the artist’s attitude, and ‘I’m Ready’ brings us to a catharsis.
Teeklef is embracing both his homes, Africa and America, and his multiple musical influences. Sonically, it merges the sounds of Afrobeat and Hip-hop, and lyrically it flips between Pidgin, Igbo, Yoruba and English. A second chapter, AfroSoul, is planned for later this year.
The AfroPop EP is available on 4/26/19 via HipNavi Sound.

I had a blast this weekend as Teeklef and his HipNavi crew hosted his core fans to a concert / Listening party . The event was held at the famous Spotlight Indy, a small concert venue inside the humble creations studio.
Teeklef kept the ladies dancing and jubilant all night with his sonorous voice and stage presence . There were other performances by notable acts like Terrance Anderson , Khiry Managan , Keiana Whatley , Camerudeboy and FOXDLEGND. Other notable celebrities present were Video director Tai Payne , DJ Mary Jane most of whom have been featured on this blog and my play list in the recent past . A lot of fans stayed to have pictures at the end. It was a lot of fun . Teeklef continues his Tour to major cities , visit his page @teeklef to find out the next tour destination.

This is the season for artistes and their babes to pepper us on their videos . Davido started it with Chioma ; Wizkid and Tiwa poured stew everywhere; and then most recently Adekunle Gold and his long term girl friend Simisola broke the internet with their own video .
After watching this Teeklef’s video and knowing the latest trend in the Industry , i am left wondering if this is the lady Teeklef has been hiding from us for years . Please if you have answers to this question , leave a comment below..
When you ask people what songs they think is Teeklef’s best music , most people especially the ladies scream, APART !! without even thinking about it. Don’t get me wrong , Teeklef is an amazing act and most of his songs like “ Slow Down ” and Day 1 have either made it to my playlist or been on repeat on other streaming platforms. Having said that , i believe Teeklef is looking to replicate the successes of APART with his new single “ CALLING ”. He is one of the most versatile artiste i have come across.
“ Calling ” is the first single from Teeklef’s Afro-pop EP. It is a heavy Afro-pop song and the vibe is really fresh . More interestingly, he’ll be following it up with a World Tour in the spring showcasing his music and the music of various other African artists living in America and abroad.
Let’s hear what you think about this one. For me, i feel it is has a lot of potential already
Here is the Recap of Mr Duke & Friends courtesy of Bella Marcia . Mr Duke and Friends was held at Bella Marcia, IN , USA on the 25th of November 2018. It featured top acts from Indianapolis like Ady Mob , Abdul , Khiry Managan , Timmy Roche , Kolly Bizzle , Neno , Teeklef , Stella Labelle , Detox , and Mr duke . There was also a Fashion display by the Fashion house ” Ada by Vanessa “.
These are pictures from Mrduke&friends held at The Bella Marcia three days ago . The event featured some of Indiana’s most promising brands. Check out some of the pictures below to have an overview of what happened.
Teeklef is quickly becoming a stand out brand in Indianapolis. After going through a tumultuous year ridden with some personal battles , i am happy to see Teeklef winning and finally back to doing what he knows best . A few weeks ago he sold out his Made in Nigeria concert and today he is putting out the video to his previously released single ” Day one ” .
According to Teeklef , Day one is about family , loyalty and your willingness to give and be there for the people you love. What i like most about the video is that it elevates the city of Indianapolis. The beautiful graffiti on the street corners, the sight of happy people and the fact that it buttresses the everyday life of the average person from indiana . The song is produced by Svdagawd and the video is directed by Tahlia Loreal and shot by Bobbeedarko .
