Nigerian rapper King Six launches “King Six Presents” with project lead single “These Days”.
Undoubtedly, the Nigerian music scene has a slow reception to rappers and artists of other genres that aren’t Afrobeat. However, King Six a Nigerian rapper, singer, and songwriter is doing something different, experimental perhaps but if it succeeds it could open a floodgate for new beginnings in the Nigerian music industry.
“King Six Presents”, although consisting of 10 songs, is neither an Ep nor LP. It’s a series of random songs that cross over different genres and create different fusions amongst them. The sounds are that diverse and King Six either raps or sings his way through them with ease. Painting appealing lyrics, telling relatable stories, slinging conscious messages, and conjuring catchy vibes.
The best part of it all is that each song is accompanied by a simple video that is themed with different colors, matching the mood, and feel of the songs. According to King Six, the music videos were inspired by the simplicity yet artistic cleverness of Tobe Nwigwe; a Nigerian-born American rapper, and Kota the Friend, who both have similar directions to most of their music videos.
