Idris King’s First ‘treasure’

We’ve waited for the Jiggy King to show us what he’s got up his black sleeves and the man has finally shown his hand.

The 90s Baby CEO turned +1 yesterday and released his debut project treasures.

treasures is a three-track solo EP, and with it comes the return of the song mbappé. The EP has Idris King talk about accepting his eccentricities (weird) and making moves to shock naysayers (dumb like donald trump).

Listen to treasures here.

Jiggy – Idris King

The French King has returned with a film for his third single Jiggy; and with a title like that, we knew the 90s Baby founder was sure to give us something entirely different.

The Bidemi Popson-directed video starts out with Idris serenading via TV screen a beautiful black woman in a red dress (also glittering gold, because black women are made of gold and honey) mused by Bariga Sugar director Ifeoma Chukwuogo, till he taps the screen and is teleported to his muse’s location to continue the good work. Then the story switches with the second verse, as Idris and his ‘gang’ chases down a ‘debtor’ to get their ‘dues’ and Idris ‘kills’ the guy with a toy gun and the video cuts to a ‘party’ with the gang ‘popping bottles’ and ‘spending cash’ – in a way that is caricature of the gang life, inspired by the movie – City of God.

The video is weird and fun and you really can’t expect anything less from Idris King.

Lemon Curd 3: Sweet & Sour

Lemon Curd 3 themed ’90’s Babies Ain’t Babies No More’ was to be a celebration of growth, but the event didn’t quite live up to this writer’s expectations. Created in 2016 and hosted by Lucid Lemons; a company of like-minded youths active in discovering and promoting the creativity of their generation, Lemon Curd has been successful in pulling New Age Nigerian music further into the spotlight rightly deserved.

The event was slated to last all day on the 4th of August and end with a nostalgic performance from Styl Plus; with an artist lineup including Blackmagic, Zamir, Tomi Thomas and a selection of other vibrant artists, Lemon Curd 3 was promising a lot, but a lack of communication and organisation may have smudged that up a tad leaving a handful of attendees unsatisfied. For an event that has been relatively successful these past two years, the bar definitely dropped with the execution of Lemon curd 3: issues like the poor time management and the quality of sound and performances from some of the artists did not – could not – go unnoted. Although, this writer may forgive these shortcomings with the arrival of actual performances from Maka, Zamir, Tomi Thomas and most especially Blackmagic and the nostalgia provided by Styl Plus.

Lemon Curd 3 could be regarded as having a successful third year in certain aspects, but with the way it was executed, Lucid Lemons has their work cut out for them because 90’s Babies will not always be so forgiving.

The PGM Radio Show (Ep 4), featuring Myoa & Idris King

This episode features Myoa, who came all the way from Houston Texas to grace the stage for the launch of the PGM Live Show in January 2017.

The show also features the young hip-hop sensation and co-founder of The 90’s Baby Movement, Idris King.

Also, a discussion ensued over the alleged fracas between Ice Prince Zamani & Davido, raising the following questions:

1.) Should artists really be worrying about who closes the show at a concert?

2.)  Does it really matter who closes the performance at the event?

3.)  Do these things connote respect?

Listen in guys and have a blast !!!
