Producers on the album include Northboi Oracle – who told Pulse Nigeria about ‘Blessed,‘ the song with Damian Marley during an interview in 2019.
A breakdown of album art
The album art seems to have changed from one that appreciates landmarks and the beauty of Lagos to one that has grown weary of the struggles in Lagos and the larger Nigeria. Especially after recent happenings in Lagos. Props for creativity.
The old album art celebrates Lagos phenomena like the three-wise men, Lekki-Ikoyi link bridge, Eyo, TBS, Lagos traffic and so forth. It connotes a sense of pride in the flawed beauty of Lagos. On the new album art, he is just tired. It’s more about the flaws than the beauty.
The album will be released via Starboy and RCA UK.
