Two of the most influential artists on the Nigerian music scene gathered in the Kuti Family’s New Afrika Shrine in Lagos to shoot their new music video ‘Ma Lo‘. The result could only be a concentrate of the best sounds, images and styles the most populous African country has to offer right now..
This is the second time that Tiwa Savage and Wizkid have made absolute magic together. After the release of ‘Bad‘ which appeared on his first studio album R.E.D (released 2016), we find the Starboy on ‘Ma Lo‘ which closes the brand new Sugarcane EP that Tiwa surprised us with about a month ago. Produced by Spellz, the track fulfills all the criteria that requires a heavy rotation on Nigerian radios: a mellow energy, that very specific dance-hall influence that creates a particular fun yet sultry mood, and the sound signature of the Pon Pon style with these soft-hitting synths coming in pairs. Recent hits such as Davido’s ‘If‘, Tekno’s ‘Pana‘ or Runtown’s ‘Mad Over You‘ are almost a sub-genre of Naija pop.
