Renowned Nigerian producer and singer Blaq Jerzee has exhibited his musical prowess on a piece of beautiful music dubbed ‘Sokoma’, off his yet-to-be-released album ‘East Meets West’.
The Afrobeat piece which features Marioo and Eddy Kenzo was produced by Young Legendary, who used a range of different organic instruments all layered together.
The song has an iconic saxophone and a tuneful piano that carry the key melodic phrases in the song.
The drums displayed the ‘East meets West’ hybrid perfectly with lots of movement entailed in the beat. A captivating chorus from Blaq Jerzee and two distinct verses from Marioo and Eddy Kenzo, collects a great fusion of talented voices.
‘Sokoma’, the first single off the album displays the core philosophy behind the album with Tanzanian feature Marioo helping to merge his native sound of Bongo Flava with Blaq Jerzee’s West African input, also joined by Ugandan International singer Eddy Kenzo.
This track really brings a diverse and eclectic dynamic mix of influences from across the continent.
According to Blaq Jerzee, ‘East Meets West’ was created to bridge the music from East Africa and their notable Bongo Flava – to the West African Afrobeats.
‘Sokoma’ was released by Ceek. The visuals were also produced by Ceek Global Studios, exhibiting a very high-level production.
Set in a local African village, all three artists shine bright against the many backdrops throughout the scenic film.
Choreography and motorbike freestyles brought a visual effect to the eventful video.
‘Sokoma’ follows the success of the previously released ‘Falling For You’ which featured Mr Eazi and Harmonize.
‘East Meets West’ was co-produced with KJ Spio.
