Nirvana Nokwe’s New EP Nirvous Love Is a Sensual Exploration of Self

Published

on

Nirvous Love

Multifaced musical force Nirvana Nokwe has released her much awaited EP Nirvous Love, a soulful 6-track project stamping the budding artist’s credentials as an auteur of immersive and affecting music.

Stream/Download Nirvous Love here: https://paradise.fanlink.to/NIRVOUSLOVE

Featured on the cover of Apple Music’s new releases Nirvous Love is an EP that brings one’s soul on a voyage of discovery: a story of love and awakening. Being self-aware due of the replicated dynamics of destruction, betrayal and hurt created in childhood, Nirvana explores the vindictive streak to attaining the love we all deserve.

 

With singles such as “2 Woke 4 Love” and “Waiting” laying the foundation, Nirvana delivers a cohesive and slyly eclectic body of work, rooted in retro, indie rock, Zulu drums, gqom and amapiano sounds, along with her ear-tingling vocal melodies and themes that dig into varying facets of the human condition.

“This project is a language in how we define and predict love. I hope everyone can find solace and healing and be relieved from the shackles of control and being controlling. This project is the blueprint of a genre I’m pioneering called Cosmic. Definitely something many may call sonic cinema, explains Nirvana.  

Nirvana’s storytelling is intimate, truthful and, quite literally, out of this world with her ethereal sounds and deep passions for astrology. Her personal brand encapsulates the modern-day intellectualised dreamer, reflecting on the complexities of life and her place in the world.

While she is Johannesburg born, she identifies more with her years in KwaMashu and Lamtonville, Durban. Her family is rooted in the arts, making it possible for Nirvana to have participated in the entertainment industry at 4-years-old as a professional. By the age of 10, Nirvana understood what she was doing in entertainment and concluded that she wanted to continue pursuing a career in the arts.

“Nirvana’s latest release shows the diversity, future thinking and artistic integrity she has developed over her career. With massive support from stores such as Apple Music, it’s clear that she has a lot to offer and we’re excited to hear what’s yet to come,” expresses Mike Kelly Label Manager at Paradise.

A creative, a performer, trained singer, actress, producer, fashion model and filmmaker. These are some of the titles that can be attributed to Nirvana Nokwe. The 26-year-old hailing from Jozi is one independent to watch for.

The Christmas season is almost here once more.
Ahead of the festivities, a lot of Ghanaian musicians who cooked what they believed to be Christmas bangers have been drilling their songs for the enjoyment and listening pleasure of their fans.
Talented young musician, Kaama has finally dropped his latest single which appears to be the real deal ahead of the yuletide, especially, for people who love rap music.
The new song of Kaame is titled ‘Yaye Koom’ and it features none other than the witty rapper cum songwriter, Kwame Yogot, who is also affectionately called the rap comedian by many people.
The well-composed song highlights the fact that people should not be judgmental of people simply because they do not like the manner they dress or appear physically because appearance can be very deceptive.
‘Yaye Koom’ was produced by one of the finest producers in the music industry now called Chilling.
Stream and enjoy the song below…

STORMZY Releases ‘This is What I Mean’ Album

STORMZY Releases 'This is What I Mean' Album

British musician Stormzy has released his highly anticipated third album, ‘This Is What I Mean’.

LISTEN/DOWNLOAD HERE

Over the course of his expansive, heartfelt and defiantly sprawling new album, the BRIT and Ivor Novello award-winning Stormzy has delivered an undeniable classic; effortlessly condensing any number of disparate styles and genres into music which bravely broaches any gap between modern Black British music, soul and hip-hop.
Executively Produced by British producer PRGRSHN, the album includes the top 10 single Hide & Seek; an emotive, soulful and ethereal offering and his latest release Firebabe; a beautifully delicate and deeply touching sound. An array of incredible musicians are also scattered throughout the record including vocal appearances from the likes of Sampha, Jacob Collier, Debbie and more, all of which are listed here.
A bold and courageous leap forward from his critically acclaimed previous two #1 records, ‘Gang Signs & Prayer and ‘Heavy Is The Head, this isn’t music simply for the pop charts but rather, an intimate and sincere love letter to music. He speaks on forgiving his absent father on the mellifluous ‘Please’ and refers to his challenges with paranoia, depression and self-doubt on penultimate track, ‘I Got My Smile Back’ – which also features a guest vocal from the incomparable India.Arie. It’s a record which showcases intensely personal and lyrical themes which in turn lay bare the vulnerabilities, regret, frailties, healing, joy and triumph in a manner and to an extent that reframes the notion of what rap artists traditionally might do and be.
In a letter posted to his social media pages last night, Stormzy wrote:
When Tyler, The Creator released the masterpiece that is ‘IGOR’ he shared a message with it and I wanted to do the same but I was hesitant. Mainly because I would love for my music to do all the talking but I thought I’d share this message anyway.
 
I do a lot of interviews and I forget that everything I say will be shared far and wide, which is probably naive of me. Things that I say in real life don’t feel the same when I see it in text. I feel like I overshare, which makes me feel naked at times. But I do it so that you guys can understand me a bit better and to give the art that I make some context. I’m never ever purposely trying to defy genres or go against the grain. I’m never tryna do what is unexpected of me or what is expected of me. If I rap for 7 minutes it’s because in my spirit, in that moment, I just really wanted to fucking rap. If I sing my heart out then it’s because my soul just absolutely had to. I love music. I love, love loveeeee music. I will rap for the rest of my life, I will sing for the rest of my life, I will make art for the rest of my life. And at no point will I ever do any of those things for any other reason than I JUST WANTED TO AND IT JUST FELT GOOD. I am not a calculated mastermind with the ability to gauge what kind of music to make and when I’ll make it, I literally just feel and then let it out. People been tryna box me in for years but I hope this chapter at least makes my biggest critic say “hey, he’s shit but he loves music and I guess he’s gonna do whatever he likes” lol
 
I pray you listen to this album in your own time, whenever you can. Listen to it properly with no distractions. I pray you listen to this album with an open heart and if you hate it after I promise to God I’m perfectly fine with that, I’m just grateful that you listened with openness. I pray that it moves you and captures your imagination. And I pray that someone, somewhere, feels it. 
 
This Is What I Mean.
And it’s what I’ve always meant. 
 
God bless. Stormz x”
 
The confidence which drove the album stemmed from a deeper and far more spiritual place than we have seen from Stormzy previously. For all the success and awards that he has accrued during his brief, meteoric career, the lockdown that ensued from the coronavirus pandemic gave him one commodity he’d long lacked: time. And thanks to his sense of accomplishment following Glastonbury he was, for the first time, in a position to make the most of it.
Much of the creative energy that shaped the album emerged from a Stormzy music camp in Osea Island – a remote island in the Essex estuary that’s only accessible via a Roman Causeway for four hours a day at low tide. Surrounded by leading-edge producers and musicians each and every morning they would eat and pray together and then spend the rest of the time driven to creative heights by each other’s talents.
When you hear about music camps they always sound intense and sombre,” says Stormzy. ““People saying: “We need to make an album.” “We need to make some hit records.” But this felt beautifully free. We’re all musicians but we weren’t always doing music. Some days we played football or walked around taking pictures. And the bi-product to that was very beautiful music. Because when you marry that ethos with world class musicians and the best producers, writers and artists in the world, and we’re in one space, that’s a recipe for something that no one can really imagine. You can’t even calculate what that’s going to come up with. And it came up with a big chunk of this album.
The net result is that while ‘This Is What I Mean sounds very much like Stormzy, it sounds like no Stormzy album you have ever heard before.

Tony Amani’s new single ‘Melody’ with Sarah Tobi is a beauty to behold

Tony Amani‘s new single with Sarah Tobi is right on schedule, as promised, yielding a five-star performance that will steal your heart in an instant. Stream or download ‘Melody’ across all major digital platforms here: https://bfan.link/tonyamanimelody

As with previous releases, the polish in Tony Amani‘s vocals remains impeccable, especially for his latest: ‘Melody’. Recorded with fellow US-based artist – Nigerian singer, Sarah Tobi – the two make a pitch-perfect pair. They effortlessly triumph, fueled by an infatuation that runs a few seconds short of four minutes.

Putting ‘Melody’ into perspective for us, the reigning “US Based Male Vocalist of the Year” courtesy of the 2022 Ghana Music Awards USA explained: “Normally, in music, the melody is a part of a song that everyone remembers and rarely forgets and I realized this idea could be applied to love and relationships. So, while writing the song, I wanted to emphasize this… and the takeaway is for listeners to at least remember Sarah’s opener for the hook: You’re my melody/Baby you’re the one for me”.

The good news is ‘Melody’ lives up to the hype that followed its announcement a few days ago, arriving as a memorable, five-star performance that will steal the hearts of listeners in an instant, thanks to the vocal quality of the artists involved.

‘Melody’ is also one of the last songs to have been blessed by the magic keys of late Nigerian producer, Dokta Frabz.

‘Onana’ is the type of song to get you singing along in a matter of seconds; yup, its infectious vocals sink right into your subconscious to revive cute encounters of you with your crush and the feeling is, of course, dizzying. Like most prisoners of love, JZyNo is left feeling weak in the knees by the attractiveness of one mystery babe and he can’t help but sing out loud: “onananana”.

He’s completely love-struck and can’t get enough of his new boo thang: “Anytime when I see your face/Baby girl you make me smile all day”. Mastered by one of California’s hottest: Grammy-nominated, Mike Tucci and produced by Gigz Beatz (Ghana), ‘Onana’ boasts of not just JzyNo’s light, exquisite vocals but also the finest of words and praises fit for a queen.

Officially starting his music career in 2019, JZyNo is already a fan favorite; he won two of his four award nominations – “Afro-pop Song of the Year”, “Afro-pop Artist of the Year” – at the 2022 Emerging Music Awards in October. But before this recent success, the young Liberian star caught our attention last year with his debut EP “Brown Sugar” and months prior with his bright party tune, ‘Fall Down Inside,’ featuring Ghanaian rapper, Medikal.
