I first heard of this versatile fellow on twitter when he released Cocoa Faces. As usual, I didn’t want to be caught up in the hype and go listen and be disappointed, not in him but myself so I tried to avoid him or the track as much as I could.
Next up, he released Very. Paid no heed to that either. I finally decided to give this Long-named musician a chance when That New dropped so I followed the link and man was i blown away. My thoughts after that were- I NEED ME SOME COCOA FACES!! Yeah, Ede funny me sef!!
BTM is by far one of the few artistes who have literally come up with a totally different style and practically own It. His style is a breath of fresh air that sets him apart from his peers. To me, he’s one of the artistes we ought to look out for in the near future.
I’m very certain we are all hyped for his debut Album which is scheduled to drop in 2021.
I'VE MADE UP MY MIND. I NEED TO GET THIS RIGHT. 'ROAD TO HASTAFARI' ALBUM WILL DROP IN 2021.
Thanks for waiting. pic.twitter.com/My3EzqXxef
