After almost 2 years since the release of the Kid Vs. G.O.A.T Mixtape. Haywaya has been quietly working behind the scenes with producers like Drumroll, Young Fly, Kuvie, Juls, Uche B and the Rap-A-Lot Records legendary Multi-Platinum Producer John Bido to perfect his craft and set the pace and tone for a more internationally viable career. Haywaya caters to the largest indigenous market on the continent (cross section of Hausa, Yoruba, Zambarama, Zugu, Twi, Ga, Pidgin and English).
Baafiira is a big boy statement to make in any hood or Ghetto across the region. Musically the vibe he brings with the song is able to transcend the language barrier in a way that most of the other indigenous rap songs in Twi, Yoruba, Zulu, Igbo, Ga and Ewe are unable to achieve.
The drum pattern in the beat though may seem chaotic, is in perfect sync and harmony with the energy and message in the verses and chorus. It is indeed ironic that a song with such a strong vocal personality is entitled – Baafiira [silence or Be Silent]
With growing interest from almost half a dozen major label representatives who chances upon him during his last performance at the Sand Box On May Day. It is safe to say that Haywaya is being looked at as becoming the next “go to” guy for that urban African sound.
Haywayas’ sound, spans and infuses very indigenous West African Styles to contemporary Afrobeat through to melodic Hiphop with a twist of something elementally African that cannot be ignored or placed. He has that fresh raw sound that fans want and there is no doubt that Baafiira will cement the spot for the Afro-Hip hop sound to compliment the ever trending Afro-Beat on the global market.
