MUNACHIMSO, is at the forefront of a sound he calls new “Afro hip”, a premium blend of updated Afrobeat and hip-hop. The Canadian based artiste has an upcoming EP called I’m G.A.Y (Godz Angry Youth) with no release date announced yet, but two singles, “ALOBAM” and “WE’RE FINE” and a “teaser for All on me” from the EP were released in late July to rave reviews, and eventually got a couple thousand hits on YouTube in less than just 2 weeks.
The singles, which debuted Munachimso’s versatility and unique funky rap style quickly, amassed attentions from fans and attracted veterans from the Nigerian rap scene. I’m G.A.Y is a body of work that defies the convention of tune-lessness that is typical of a Nigerian rap Album. Tracks in the EP such as “All on me” and “Tony Montana” are very accommodating of boundless dancing; while “Akupugom” is more of an introductory story telling song while “24-7” is a rigorous truth about life in Nigeria.
Listeners find themselves experiencing a new appreciation for highlife music and the flavor it adds to naija’s hiphop. The tracks below are exclusives for even the deaf to get entertained to, “ALL ON ME”, “AKUPUGOM” and a “TEASER for 24-7”.
