Undoubtedly, the Nigerian music scene has a slow reception to rappers and artists of other genres that aren’t afrobeats. However, King Six a Nigerian rapper, singer and songwriter is doing something different, experimental perhaps but if it succeeds it could open a floodgate for new beginnings in the Nigerian music industry.
King Six – These Days
A journey through diverse phenomena of Sounds.
King Six Presents, although consisting of 10 songs, is neither an Ep or an Album. It’s a series of random songs that cross over different genres and create different fusions amongst them.
It moves from Afro-Rap or Afrocentric hip hop as King Six calls it to Jazz-Rap to AfroTrap to Afropop fused with Palmwine Music to Trap.
Yup! The sounds are that diverse and King Six either raps or sings his way through them with ease. Painting appealing lyrics, telling relatable stories, slinging conscious messages and conjuring catchy vibes.
The best part of it all is that each song is accompanied with a simple video that is themed with different colors that signifies the mood and feel of the songs.
According to King Six, the music videos where inspired by the simplicity yet artistic cleverness of Tobe Nwigwe; a Nigerian born American rapper and Kota the Friend, who both have similar directions to most of their music videos.
The first song of this project drops on the 9th of September 2021 and the other singles will follow every 10 days for the next 11 weeks. It could be a game changer so we suggest you plug into this.
We will be taking an in-depth look at each song and giving you well thought out reviews as they drop.
