Among other impressive feats, the fast-to-fame mega rapstar is famous for co-headlining blockbuster events around the world notably Dubai’s hottest concert ‘’Sole DXB’’ alongside Pusha T and the Global Citizen concert in Berlin alongside Mafikizolo. Serious Klein has already earned co-signs from some top names in the global music arena – very recently being touted by Alicia Keys as ‘’one of the hottest newcomers in Germany’’. His impressive co-sign list also includes notable music curator COLORS, who have hosted his performances twice with renowned publications FADER, Highsnobiety, Complex, Outlander Magazine, GQ Magazine and many more also reinforcing Klein’s credence and why the world should really look out for this certified superstar.

Serious Klein has proven to be a major force to be contented with, boasting a remarkable music repertoire that includes official campaign soundtracks for Mercedes Benz – for the new C-Class: ‘’Never Stop Improving’’; an official song for clothing brand, Maison Valentino and Paul Pogba’s Adidas Capsule campaign soundtrack. Since emerging from the underground scene thanks to his debut EP ‘’Serious Outlook’’ in 2012, Klein has never looked back. He has gone ahead to deliver other impressive bodies of work notably ‘’Summer 03’s Problem’’ (2016) which gained Klein more popularity within his local market and a new found recognition in the US & UK.

His sound which he describes as ‘art rap’ is an eclectic mix of Jazz, Rap, Hip-Hop, Trap and Soul. His intrinsically diverse sound stems from his love of music of all kinds and is heavily influenced by artists ranging from 2Pac Shakur to Luther Vandross. 2016 brought Serious in contact with international artists such as Denzel Curry, Mick Jenkins, The Underachievers and Bryson Tiller, some of who he supported on European tour dates.

His short movie which was shot in Ghana won a Webby Award in 2020 over A$AP Rocky and Post Malone. Beyond the stunning visuals, Klein and long-time collaborator and Grammy award-winning producer, Rascal who has worked with the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Justin Bieber and Jorja Smith have developed a remarkable sound. Packing stunning visuals, lyrics filled with poetic wisdom, energy and fun, the rapper is on his way to be one of the greats of our time.

New amapiano jam “Fire” served HOT to Ghanaians by Ijekimora and Busiswa – LISTEN

Published

on

Ijekimora 2

Nigerian Afrobeats Artiste, Ijekimora, shares her latest single “Fire” with her Ghana fanbase. She featured South African Music Icon, Busiswa, on it. An official video was shot for it too along with the official release of the song.

 

Stream “Fire” featuring Busiswa here on Digital Stores: Azuri.lnk.to/Fire

 

About Creating The Song “Fire”

“We came up with the title ‘Fire’ because of the way Busiswa came wild and unapologetic on the beat and it was so steamy we had to name it ‘Fire’, and the chorus had that melody in it too; the song already defined itself and you get to feel the energy and power behind it when you’re listening to it.” – Ijekimora

 

“The concept of the song is just 2 girls taking over, literally, empowering ourselves as 2 fierce women in the music industry living the best of our lives and making money as well,” Ijekimora added. The song is Amapiano inspired.

 

Why Busiswa for a feature?

Ijekimora was looking forward to breaking into the South African market, thus, needed an artiste she could work with; coincidentally Busiswa came through as the one. Busiswa had a show in Lagos and Ijekimora’s Team connected with her; and everything took off from there. “It wasn’t stressful at all getting her to jump on my song”, she says.

 

Ijekimora is still experimenting sounds to put together her debut EP she announced as “Kimorality”. She promises her fans to expect the EP to be out some time in 2023 though there were delays. She is a perfectionist and makes sure she gets her things right hence the little delay but off the cuff she has alreay released fire singles “Sexy Papa”, “Temptation” and a previous sensation “Stand By Me” featuring Seyi Vibez.

 

Ijekimora, grew up in Dallas but hails from Nigeria. She often shuffles between Nigeria and Ghana; she says Ghana is like a second home to her so she frequents Ghana grounds to do her promotions each time she drops a new song.

 

Busiswa Gqulu, known mononymously as Busiswa or Busi, is a South African singer-songwriter and poet. Born in Mthatha, Eastern Cape, South Africa, she gained public recognition for her feature on DJ Zinhle’s song, “My Name Is”, after being discovered by Kalawa Jazmee’s CEO Oskido. She is a vibrant artiste known across Africa and beyond and has rocked many stages locally and internationally.

Akwaboah Collaborates With Medikal On New Single, 'Picture'

Highlife and Afro fusion sensation Akwaboah in keeping with his promise to release one banger after another from now till ending of 2023 has outdoored a new Single titled ‘Picture’.

The new song features a first time collaboration with the award winning rapper Medikal.

Akwaboah is currently enjoying enormous success as his Black Stars anthem titled ‘Bring back the Love’ continues to be a fan favourite among football and music lovers during this World Cup season.

Picture is a blend of Highlife and Afrobeat notes and Medikal definitely does justice with his catchy punchlines. Fans are already calling Medikal’s performance his best rap feature on a song.

The song alludes to the penchant for pictorially capturing the significant or joyous moments of one’s life and sharing with friends and family mostly via social media. Its catchy tune is certain to make it a viral hit this Christmas and beyond.

Akwaboah has been tight-lipped on an exact date for the release of the Lighthouse Album, choosing simply to say it will definitely be released early next year.

It will be recalled that Akwaboah surprised his fans last year by releasing the Lighthouse EP instead of the Album. According to him, this was because he had a solid 15 tracks which was ready to go but needed to break it into two for his fans and music lovers to properly appreciate every track on both the EP and subsequent album.

If his collaboration with Medikal on Picture is anything to go by, then fans can truly anticipate a great Lighthouse Album ahead.
