Nigerian-Bohemian act, Stiques who also goes by the name ‘Stiques the god’ is a multi-talented creative. Born in Kaduna, the singer, songwriter, producer, audio engineer, and sound design artist has always sought to project his culture through his music. And his latest effort, ‘Sani Abacha’ is no different.
Sonically, the record fuses African and Western elements, melding trap music with EDM, laced with African percussions. Rapping majorly in Hausa and occasionally code mixing with English, Stiques gives an ode to one of Nigeria’s most memorable and notorious Head of State General Sani Abacha after whom the track is titled. Towards the end of the record, the voice of the late General can be heard in a soundbite of his maiden nationwide broadcast of November 17th, 1993.
