This is a new joint from NPZ titled, “Aisha”. It is a song dedicated to strong independent women who know their worth and won’t settle for less.
“I wrote Aisha as a tribute to all the hardworking women in Africa, who have what it takes to hold their own. I kept it light and not too dancy in order to cater to all my fans and a wide-spectrum of music lovers”, he says.
Aisha, which features NPZ’s HKN label-mate, Davido; it is expected to be a massive hit and DJs are already queuing up to play the record. Fans may remember, NPZ from hit singles, “African Champion” and “Bad Boy” featuring Davido in 2009, but there is a new twist to this artist’s career.
According to him, “I took some time off recording to tour Asia and some parts of Europe last year. I needed a change of environment and a new direction, so I went around listening to new songs from various cultures and found electro-dance somewhat appealing”.
The word out is that NPZ is about to storm Nigeria with a light electro-dance song titled “Shut It Down”.
“Shut it down is a fusion of afropop and light electro-dance. It is relatively new to Africa and I thought I’d give it a go and see how the audience respond to it. It caters to a wide variety of music lovers. I ensured that it did not stray too far from afrobeat as identity and nationalism is extremely important to me”.
NPZ releases “Aisha” hit online today, to be followed by “Shut It Down”. Music lovers everywhere will surely bop their heads and shake their feet to these floor-breaking tunes.
