AFEEZ (@OfficialAfeez) - IRE FT XCAFO
Afeez grew up in the city of Lagos, Nigeria. "ASA" which is Yoruba rhyming slang is the way of communication and expression among the populace hence the reflection in his music.
Although he is inspired by a lot of great musicians, Fela Kuti remains his greatest influence. Afeez has worked on most of his project with top UK Afrobeat producer O.Y productions. Earlier in the year he released a viral video to promote his hit single "Original". He originally started writing mainstream afro-dance music but his upcoming E.P is focused more on substance.
Currently working on a 9-track project that is due to be released soon, Afeez is promising an awakening for an industry that is yearning for change".
