Ike Chuks Igbotic EP
Ike Chuks Igbotic: UK-born Nigerian rapper/singer, Ike Chuks is out with fresh new body of work which he titled “Igbotic”.
With a career birthed in London, the rapper has carved a niche for himself with a unique style of storytelling in pidgin English, his native Igbo language as well as proper English.
He has previously recorded collaborations with musical acts like Ycee, Moelogo, Krishane and Dotman. This is alongside other singles to his credit.
This ingenious and original niche has given birth to an outstanding extended song play- The EP “Igbotic”.
This is the rapper’s second body of work and sees him performing to the best of his strengths.
It is a very catchy mix of U.K Afro Swing, delivered in Afro-pop blend of English, pidgin and Igbo language.
On the EP, the artiste can be heard demystifying a popular stereotype about people from the Igbo tribe, one of Nigeria’s biggest ethnic groups, by making resonating music in his own unique Igbo style.
This symmetry in creativity is very evident in the warm greened theme of the project, as the colour green represents one of Nigeria’s main exports, agriculture.
The 5-track EP which features collaborations from contemporary music acts has the hallmarks of a modern cultural reset.
Here are the songs in the EP:
1 What Happened To Kate
2 Ego ft. Mystro
3 Never Been
4 Money ft. Boj
This is one EP you should have and listen to.
