Ugandan master of hits and classics, Navio teams up The Mith (Uganda) and Nigeria’s Ice Prince in new release titled “Paper”.
The single, presented by Navcorp and Icon, is produced by Mo Piano and mastered by Dawoo at Audio Central. It’s a super fresh and clean track with edgy hip-hop sounds meets trap. The video was shot and edited by the power duo: Shiloh and Henix.
”The single is the flagship production under Icon, Navio’s brand new cutting edge Ugandan studio and label, opening soon. It’s just one among many of Navio’s great projects set to launch. “This song is really about those on the hustle and push limits to achieve their dreams. It’s also a cautionary tale with hints of vengeance and the pitfalls of the high life,” he adds.
“Paper” follows the success of “Nielewe” collaboration between Navio and Vanessa Mdee.
Navio, The Mith and Ice Prince are some of Africa’s most consistent artistes in the game, with their contribution to hip hop music scene being insurmountable, with Navio and Ice Prince having delivered some of last year’s biggest hits like “Njogereza” and “Particular”.
Navio concludes: “With three lyricists with 20 years of experience between them, “Paper” goes everywhere. A big shout out to my Kenyan fans who keep pushing me towards being more than just the most award-winning hip-hop artiste in East Africa. We're just warming up!" With enough lyrical interplay to satisfy any hip-hop fan, “Paper” is a collaboration set to become another one of Navio’s smash hits.
Bobby Mapesa and Calvo Mistari make BC— the Kenyan hip hop music duo who unveiled their new merger while releasing their debut album (BC) last year (2017).
They have since been working on several projects that have birthed two music videos of their new single, produced by Cedo: LOVE ME featuring sky rocketing Kenyan femcee Fena. One is by acclaimed Kenyan director VJ One with the second one directed by Odibz of Team Mistari, depicting social media’s influence on relationships. Video two features renowned Kenyan media personality Kamene Goro.
Speaking on the smooth R&B track, Calvo said, “This is one of the songs in BC album that shows the diversity of our sound. From the collaboration to production; we hope you all love it!”
The same was echoed by Bobby who said, “My fans have never heard this soft side of me. I think working on a love song is nice for a change!”
LOVE ME is recorded by Dillie and mastered by acclaimed legendary producer Eric Musyoka of Decimal Records, LOVE ME is the sixth single off the successful BC album.
Fena speaks of her first collaboration with BC: "I am happy that LOVE ME is already making waves and I was elated when BC hit me up to be on their album because I have mad respect for Calvo having known him as a big brother in the industry for a while. It was also exciting to finally meet Bobby Mapesa,” adding, “BC is a talented group and its so much fun to work with them always.”
