Nigerian singer/songwriter, and Hip-Hop impresario, Korkormikor touted by some as the ‘Next Big Thing’ from out of the Niger Delta area, has released the music video for his latest single, ‘Delete Them All’.
The song captures the angst he has built up over the years and may suggest that he is getting rid of the competition on his way to the top. The mellow mood of the song makes it easy to overlook the serious quips made on the track. He calls for a ‘hit’ on the heads of proverbial haters/enemies-of-progress. The video beefs up the song by playing with the Mafia Genre as in Mario Puzo’s Classic, The Godfather. Nigerian Rap Legend, Modenine made a cameo appearance in the video. It was directed by James Oludare, and produced by Larte Badom for Xcel Music.
Korkormikor comes from the same part of Nigeria that churned out mainstream acts like Timaya, Frank D’Nero and Duncan Mighty. He was born Deinbofa Nana Okoto in Otuan, a typical resource-rich but economically deprived community in Bayelsa State, Nigeria. His journey into music was filled with more lows than highs until he met Larte ‘The Tycoon’ Badom, the CEO of Xcel Music (now Molach Entertainment). Soon after, in 2007, he released “Something for Y’all”, the lead single on his debut album, “Korkormystic: Port-Harcourt City Breed”. It went on to become a groundbreaking single in the region.
His music is inspired by his personal battles as well as the communal struggles of his people. His musical influences range from Reggae to Hip-Hop; and include Alpha Blondie, Bob Marley, Majek Fashek, Lauryn Hill, Tupac and Snoop Dogg.
