If you know the Nigerian music scene well enough, you would know Bankuli. This man wears so many hats in the industry and has been instrumental in shipping afrobeats to the global market. If you follow him on Twitter, you’d know him to be the elder statesman always dropping priceless gems to help newcomers and established acts navigate the thorn-filled industry. Even in this current lockdown, he has been hosting an InstaLive series, Connecting The Dots where he holds conversations with industry practitioners on the state of our music space.
But asides his work on the backgrounds, Bankuli is also a singer. He made appearances on Beyonce’s curated “The Lion King: The Album,” contributing vocals on ‘Find Your Way Back’ and ‘Otherside’. But today marks a new turn in Bankuli’s career as he teams up with soul-stirring vocalist, WurlD to release an inspiring record titled ‘Gbemiro’.
Over the soft and soothing production from Nonso Amadi, Bankuli delievers a prayerful number, pleading to God to continue to keep him uplifted. WurlD joins him in this prayer session with his thrilling vocal on full display.
No doubt, this is a tune that’d help to lift the spirits of music lovers as we continue to fight to keep ourselves safe physically and mentally in these ‘rona times.
Enjoy the record above.
