The Nigerian music scene has had its fair share of bangers this year 2018 and most artistes are at the top of their game. What can we say, it’s been a great year.
From the MMH camp comes another head turner, this same young man gave us Mama Mia which is still clearly burning through the air waves in various continents and an awesome video shot in Hollywood (still an industry special) with ratings and views. The fan videos have been amazing, from dinner events to cookouts and on air radio shoutouts, Mama Mia has definitely set Akaycentric on the map as a full time representer of that black energy the world adores.
Born in Nigeria and of Lagos state descent, Akinola Oshodi with the stage name Akaycentric has come again in the past few days on social media with behind the scenes video footage and pictures of an ongoing project in Los Angeles Hollywood.
From all indications, this already has the looks of a masterpiece as this same location has been used by the likes of Chris Brown in his song New Flame featuring Usher and Rick Ross, Britney Spears in Work Bitch , Travis Scott in Butterfly Effect, Bryson Tiller (some models Bryson has worked with featured in this Akaycentric classic) and our very own Nigerian artiste, Flavour featuring Diamond Platnumz just to mention a few. Revlon and Nike have also used this same location on some of their ad campaigns.
Big moves reap big rewards and from the little I’ve seen, this in-work visual portrays a lot of beauty and richness of the black excellence. Shot by Monkey Media House Video Director; Emmanuel Fordjour, we expect nothing but quality as Akaycentric has promised to keep the quality of his music on a rise and we’ve seen nothing short of delivery on this promise from tune to tune.
We all look forward to the finished work. Follow Akaycentric on Instagram @Akaycentric, view pictures and videos of the ongoing shoot, turn on post notifications to stay updated with the progress and drop words of encouragement.
