Naija Chronicles and a New Release: 💭 SiLenT ThOuGhTs 💭 – #BringBackOurGirls

Hello Friends,

Heartwarming greetings from my African sunkissed heart to yours 🙂 and a Happy new month of August to you!

I just arrived from my home country of Nigeria the past month of July, promoting my debut album “Organically Singing”  and  garnering some press/media presence and on ground performances. Follow me at  @Tosinger on instagram  to have a sneak peak of that journey, see a few pics below. Thank God for His mercies, grace and favor and thank you Lagos for your hospitality.

I am also delighted to present to you a creative product of my visit to Nigeria which is officially released digitally today. I worked with the multitalented Producer/Musician – FloRocka– on my latest project, an audio drama/spoken word titled ‘Silent Thoughts’.

Meeting the talented Florocka 6 years after. Prior to this, 6 years ago, I did digital artist promotions and social media marketing for his very first project – The OverFlo
With Flo and Rapper DMSquared

‘Silent Thoughts‘ is an Audio Drama/Spoken Word/Storytelling Project with an afro-theatrical edge addressing the issues of our times. As a spoken form of art on a musical backdrop, ‘Silent Thoughts’ intends to provoke and inspire thought towards change. Things have been quiet lately about the Chibok Girls. Whatever happened to #BringBackOurGirls? What is currently happening?

NAIJABOYZ ARE BAAAAAAAAACK!!

Top of the day to you all,

So this musical comedic duo, ‘The Komolafe Twins’ aka Naijaboyz have been in hiatus for a while. I’ve always been amused by their African take on mainstream pop music through their intentionally satirical videos and spoofy remixes. So they just launched their comeback with an ‘African Parents’ spin on disciplining their wayward teenagers, influenced by  ‘Miley Cyrus’  using her “Wrecking Ball” music video. You need to be conversant with all the drama surrounding Miley Cyrus and the ‘Wrecking Ball’ video and maybe a little more familiar with the ‘legality’ and regularity of corporal punishment back in Nigeria ( and maybe Africa in general) especially pre-MTV generation to enjoy the video. Funny enough I was just having that conversation yesterday about how we got spanked in secondary school albeit as innocent students alongside the perpetrator if no one owned up to the accusation ha ha.:D.

Nevertheless, this is just plain and simple – hilarious.

So here goes NaijaBoyz Music video Miley Cyrus performing ‘Wrecking Ball’ The African Remix.. Miley Cyrus – Wrecking Ball (Chatroulette Version) By the way, “Chop Igbati” means “Give you a dirty and resounding slap” (not a literal translation lol but that’s the idea, “chop”- pidgin for “take it”, igbati – “slap” in Yoruba)

Young generation ‘Africans in America’, or in the ‘West’ in general, you have to relate.. 😀
