Palmwine season here again! Iconic Nigerian hip-hop duo, Show Dem Camp has released the third instalment in the Palmwine Music series “The Palmwine Express”, earlier today, December 13. This project comes just about 12 months after their year-opening tape, “These Buhari Times,” a pristine hip-hop full-length which many swear is the best Nigerian rap project of 2019. This project was premiered on the PGM Radio Show With Douglas Jekan on Wednesday, December 11.
Show Dem Camp kicked off the Palmwine Music series in 2017 with a 6-track EP that featured appearances from Odunsi (The Engine), BOJ, Funbi, Ladipoe and Ajebutter 22. Following the success of that tape, they also launched their annual Palmwine Music Festival that same year. In 2018, the duo released the second instalment of the series, a 10-track project this time, with an expansive guest list that includes Nonso Amadi, Moelogo, Tomi Agape, Worlasi, Flash, Burna Boy, and Falana. Frequent collaborators, BOJ, Ajebutter 22 and Ladipoe also reappeared on “Palmwine Music 2.”
On this highly collaborative, Spax-produced 12-track album, Show Dem Camp brings along a host of friends, frequent collaborators and other super gifted acts. Across the album, you’d be hearing the familiar vocal contributions of Funbi, Nonso Amadi, Boj, Moelogo and Tomi Thomas who had all appeared either on Palmwine Music 1 or 2. The Palmwine Music first-timers featured on this project include Tems, Amaarae, Wani, Fasina, Buju and Nsikaka David.
The accompanying Palmwine Music Fest is scheduled to hold on Saturday, December 28 at the Muri Okunlola Park.
