Last week, we reported that Show Dem Camp is set to release their second 2019 project “The Palmwine Express” in a few days. Just a few hours ago, the iconic rap duo heightened the anticipation for the album by unveiling the mouth-watering tracklist for the project; the third instalment in their Palmwine Music series.
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.”
According to the tracklist, this album is going to contain 12 tracks, making it the longest Palmwine Music project so far.
On this highly collaborative project, Show Dem Camp is bringing 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. In usual practice, the entire project is produced by Spax.
The accompanying annual Palmwine Music Fest, which officially kicked off in 2017 is having its third leg on Saturday, December 28 at the Muri Okunlola Park.
Remember, “The Palmwine Express” is scheduled to drop this Friday, December 13 and it’s already available for pre-order/ pre-save here. Later today, Ghost and Tec (Show Dem Camp) and the team would stop by the PGM Radio Show to preview the project. Tune in to the Beat 99.9 FM by 10 pm.
