One of Nigeria’s most gifted and eccentric acts Blackmagic has released a new surprise project, “Blackmagic 3.0 (Starving Artist).” This is the long-overdue follow-up to his much celebrated 2013 classic, “Blackmagic 2.0” which contained standouts like ‘Repete’, the Sasha-assisted ‘Confam’ and ‘Pass Me By, featuring Oritse Femi.
Almost without warning, the project comes much to the delight of fans and lovers of good music after we were reminded of Blackmagic’s brilliant artistry on a guest feature on Blaqbonez’s last tape, “Mr Boombastic.” He also released two EPS last year that went under the radar despite its brilliance.
“Blackmagic 3.0 (Starving Artist)” is a 13-track LP with appearances from one of Nigeria’s most promising acts, Tems and rapper, Big Bad. The album is led by singles, ‘Bad Intentions’, ‘Anything 4 Love’ and ‘No Need’.
