Banku Music honcho – Mr. Eazi has new music for us. He titles this star-studded Afro-Carribean joint ‘ Oh My Gawd’ featuring Jamaican-American electronic dance music trio , multiple award-winning American rapper – Nicki Minaj & UK based Nigerian multi-talented artist – K4mo.
The first single off Mr Eazi’s upcoming EP, is a dancehall-inspired track featuring Nicki Minaj and K4MO.
The track, “Oh My Gawd” takes lyrical inspiration from reggae/dancehall classics by Black Uhuru and Baby Cham, and is the first single from Mr Eazi’s Something Else EP coming in October. “
Oh My Gawd,” out now on all DSPs, was produced by Fred Again and Diplo, with co-production from Alex Gibson, Toddla T and Siba.
An official dance video, directed by London-based Alexx Adjei and choreographed by Patience J, features some of the UK’s top dancehall and Afro dancers commandeering a posh, old-money estate in the British countryside for a raucous bashment party complete with the latest moves from Kingston and Lagos.
Nigerian-born, UK-based artist K4MO, who delivers the track’s hook, calls “Oh My Gawd” a “contagious hit that will remain a classic for years to come.”
“This record was really fun to make,” Mr Eazi says. “It’s crazy how it went from hearing a K4mo intro in the studio with Fred Again, to me jumping on it and then Diplo hopping in! And [Major Lazer’s] Walshy Fire hitting me up to say it’s a banger—next thing Nicki is on it! Been a journey really, like two years in the making, and I can’t wait to perform it at my next festival!”
