Reekado Banks Teams Up With Kida Kudz & EO On ‘Need More’

Ahead of his soon-to-be-released EP which he announced officially just a few days ago, Reekado Banks has released a new record titled ‘Need More’ featuring the Jiggy boy Kida Kudz as well as EO. This would be Reekado Banks’ first single release since he got stuck in the lockdown for about six months in Gabon after going there to shoot a music video.

This coming EP “Off The Record” would be Reekado Banks’s first release project since his celebrated debut album “Spotlight” which was released over four years ago. The original plan was to release his sophomore album this year, but apparently, this was also one of the plans disrupted by COVID this year. Now, his fans would have to settle for this 5-track EP which would serve as a prelude to his full-length body of work.

Speaking about the EP in a recent interview with GRM, he revealed that “all the songs on the EP are collaborations. There is not a single song that isn’t a feature. As you already know, “Need More” has Kida Kudz and EO. There’s a song with Wizkid on the EP, another with Tiwa Savage and Mr Eazi.

The crazy thing is I didn’t actually get to sit down with many of the artists, apart from two of them. Tiwa stopped by my house one day and recorded, and I was with Wizkid in his studio when we made the record. Every other song was done remotely and I really love everyone on the project.”

This new record ‘Need More’ is heavily influenced by the UK bounce and it just feels so fitting to have Kida Kudz on the joint. Over the head-bopping beat, the trio croon about having the best of times at a wild all-night party and how that just isn’t enough. The Blaise Beatz-produced bop offers something in its liquid chorus for everybody who listens to it: pining for a blazing romance, a twinge of nostalgia, or a shot of self-praise.

Enjoy the record above.

Kida Kudz Is His Goofy Self In New ‘Stay Jiggy’ Freestyle

Kida Kudz is back with new music, just three months after he released his “Nasty” mixtape. The UK-based rapper had also revealed plans on embarking on a 25-state Nigerian university tour, which appears to have been stalled by the COVID-19 pandemic. Thankfully, this isn’t enough to stop us from getting new music as Kida releases a new freestyle titled ‘Stay Jiggy’.

With a total runtime of just over a minute, ‘Stay Jiggy’ finds the rapper in his goofy character bragging of how much he is a ladies man.

Enjoy the freestyle above.

Kida Kudz Releases New Mixtape “Nasty”

As promised a few days ago, UK-based Nigerian rapper and the self-acclaimed Jiggy boy, Kida Kudz has released his new mixtape titled “Nasty.”

Released under the famed Disturbing London imprint, the tape contains ten tracks, spanning just over a 29-minute runtime. The tape, however, guests only three acts Tankia and UK rappers Jaykae and Chip.

Sadly, this project does not include our favourite Kida Kudz-cuts like ‘Moonwalk’ and ‘Money’ with Teni. However, we are also excited that we are getting a whole tape full of fresh unheard cuts save for the Jaykae-featured ‘ 1 am’ which opened the year for the Jiggy boy. 

Enjoy the project above.

Kida Kudz Is Living His Best Life On ‘1am’ With Jaykae

Following a quite busy 2019, Kida Kudz is back with the same energy and perhaps more as he kicks off the new year with a banging release, ‘1am‘ featuring UK rapper, Jaykae. This is Kida Kudz’s first offering since his team up with Sons of Sonix and Teni on ‘Money‘, a song that finds the acst crooning about their desire for cash. It also features a brilliantly cinematic video that finds Kida Kudz successfully pulling off a Teni-masterminded heist. Given the frequency of Kida Kudz’s releases over the past year, there is a growing suspicion that there might be a project on the horizon. But we’d all just have to wait to find out.

This new record, ‘1am‘ samples Ghana’s V.I.P‘s 2003 classic, ‘Ahomka Wo Mu‘, which is chopped and diced to create a smooth jiggy bop which Kida Kudz has come to call home. Despite being an unlikely collaborator, Jaykae doesn’t feel out of place on the record as he effortlessly rides on the beat with a polished and unrelenting flow. Across the record, the pair just croon about living their best life in the wee hours of the morning. The accompanying video which premiered on GRM Daily tells it all, finding both acts chilling and later going on to rob a couple of chics of their jewellery.

Check out the video below.

Teni Extends Her Streak Of Killer Features On Kida Kudz’s ‘Money’

This year has quite been Teni’s year when it comes to guest spots on records. She kicked off her string of stellar guest verses with her cheeky attempt at rap on Skiibii‘s star-studded ‘Daz How Star Do. And ever since, Teni has been on a killing spree, adding a golden touch to every song she blesses.

The latest addition to her 2019 killer-verses collection is ‘Money‘, by Kida Kudz and Sons of Sonix who produced the record. This is the follow-up to the Jiggy Boy’s ‘Moonwalk‘ which got a sultry music video. And with the frequency of his releases this year, it feels like there might be a project on the horizon.

However, this new single – Kida’s fourth release of the year – feels like a step away from the previous releases as it has a prevalent Afropop feel while retaining the Jiggy sound which has been characteristic of his 2019 releases. The song finds the acts crooning about a desire we can all relate to regardless of class: the life-long quest for more money. This is a desire Teni reinforces in her EP lead single, ‘Billionaire‘, and it’s brilliantly-directed accompanying video.

The follow-up cinematic video finds Kida Kudz, Teni and their team chasing the paper in a short but dangerous path. It opens with Kida Kudz and his cohorts plotting a heist in the U.K, while kingpin Teni appears to be the brain behind the heist and the supplier of the needed tools right from Lagos, Nigeria.

Kida Kudz Taps Wiley For New Single ‘Bounce’

Kida Kudz is showing no signs of slowing down. Just a few days ago, the Disturbing London signee released ‘Moon Walk‘ and while we’ve still not gotten over the bop and he is already serving us a new monster jam titled ‘Bounce’.

On this record teams up with the East London rapper, Wiley to create yet another club banger that could get you in your worst behaviour. In the accompanying video, Kida Kida is found in a sexy car wash with the hot models cheerfully obliging his requests to ‘make it bounce’.

The raunchy video is directed by Capone and Guise.
