Naira Marley teams up with BackRoad Gee for new single ‘Vawulence’.
Naira is the living embodiment of the link between the UK and Nigeria, his music criss-crossing between those cultural streams. An icon within the development of afrobeats, his evolution reaches fresh levels on his latest single.
An all-out banger, ‘Vawulence’ is self-described as Gangpiano, matching some of those funky South African percussive vibes to his raw word play. The track finds Naira Marley stepping beyond his boundaries, and it’s the first new message since his debut album earlier this year.
Indeed, the rapper is red-hot right now – he also features on WizKid’s essential new single ‘Wow’ alongside North London ion Skepta.
Out now, ‘Vawulence’ continues to join the dots between London and Nigeria, with BackRoad Gee leaping on board for a rugged feature.
Keasy directs the video, which is set in Paris.
