This is a welcome to 2018 from singer Tonero. His second single of the year, Many Men is a jam for Hip-Hop heads.
Tonero is one of the many that have been enamoured by music from a young age, but this artist did not start his journey till he got to the university, releasing his debut single Dirty Sprite. The reception for the song (over 28,000 streams on SoundCloud) was a confidence boost for the singer and a sign from the music gods for him to continue; the singer together with friends Adedayo Laketu and Nasir Ahmed (of MoreBranches) founded the music company Euphonic Music. Tonero released his first body of work Ajna in 2016. The tape was followed by a handful of singles including the fan favourite Missed Calls.
Tonero took a hiatus at the beginning of this year but has ended the silence with the release of the single Many Men. The song features Kanebi and is inspired by his love for hardcore Hip-Hop/Rap. Listening to the beat for the first time last night, I was reminded of Tupac’s California Love. The song is a tale of Tonero’s journey so far and his wariness of the many waiting to see him fail and his never-shifting focus on his career.
