Teck-Zilla assembles a crew of the country’s most promising emcees for the official “MP3” video.
Lead by Lagos’ self-proclaimed First Female President Phlow, the RCube-shot video is said to be inspired by the legendary Chuck D’s quote “The Super MC is the one that can spit in more than two languages.” With help from fellow Nigerian emcees Pryse and Mz Kiss, all three rappers successfully flip their native tongue of Yoruba and English.
‘Turn a blind eye like Fetty Wap’ – raps Boogey.
For her first single of the year, soulful singer/songwriter Maka delivers a beautifully hypnotizing new track, “Sinner.” The track features her fellow Lagosian artist Boogey, with production supplied by the Nigerian-born beatsmith, Teck-Zilla.
All parties involved are at the top of their respective games here as Maka guides the tune with her stunning vocals and relatable lyricism. When she sings, “This thing called life, is not black and white/ I am just a human, tryin’ to do what’s right,” you can feel the pain and contemplation in her voice, and it’s an emotion so many of us have felt in our lives.
To that point, Maka says of the track: “Like most of my songs, I want to write about something everyone could relate to. ‘Sinner’ talks about the vulnerability of humans and how imperfect we are.”
“I had always wanted to put that in a song so when Teck played the beat, I knew that was the right track for the concept,” she adds, noting the uplifting production from Teck-Zilla. Boogey captured the concept perfectly as well. His vivid rhymes are quirky, yet full of reflection, as he too struggles with trying to be perfect while seeking redemption.
“Sinner” is now available for stream and download through all major digital retailers, courtesy of Str8Buttah Productions.
