Self-styled hip hope artiste J Bones is at the forefront of an emergent wave of contemporary artistes who are bringing a message of hope to Nigeria through inspirational music. Influenced by his background as a chorister in his childhood church, J Bones’s lyricism incorporates elements of faith while also reflecting the prevailing socioeconomic conditions in the nation.
As its title suggests, ‘S.O.S’ epitomizes the common man’s cry for help. It explores the plight of Nigeria’s masses and draws attention to the problems that plague the polity. The single is produced by and features fast-rising beatmaker Ex-O.
