Mut4y has released a new single titled 4 Play featuring Shaydee Boi.
Already a chart sensation in Nigeria, as well as Ghana, the fast-rising alté scene star Odunsi (The Engine), is set to introduce himself to his biggest international audience so far by sharing his new single ‘Tipsy’. ‘Tipsy’ is his first release for Parlophone and features RAYE, the artist behind ‘Decline’ and a collaborator with the likes of Stefflon Don, Mabel and Kojo Funds.
A striking step-forward from last year’s debut album ‘rare.’, ‘Tipsy’ finds Odunsi (The Engine) pushing his music into darker territory, with elements of R&B, soul and pop part of his global-facing, Afro-fusion sound. His vocal interplay with RAYE is the perfect fit, with both artists possessing the character and star quality to naturally complement each other’s talent.
“‘Tipsy’ is one of my special records because I express myself through a different style that I usually never have. And working with RAYE made it even more special,” says Odunsi (The Engine).
We at the PGM Club endorse this record.
Based in Lagos, the 22-year-old artist, songwriter and producer first made an impression in 2016 with the release of his debut EP ‘Time of Our Lives’.
His growing reputation throughout Africa resulted in him releasing the track ‘In The Morning’ as the first official signing to Universal Nigeria. Yet his independently released debut album ‘rare.’ proved to be the biggest moment of his career to date. The album fired him to #1 in Nigeria and #4 in Ghana, and further attention following by a diverse array of international media including The FADER, MTV and the Financial Times. It also featured stellar collabs with DaVido and Hamzaa.
Subsequent radio support included Julie Adenuga at Beats 1, while the DaVido collab ‘Divine’ was playlisted at 1Xtra.
Odunsi (The Engine) is set to play his debut UK shows next month. He’ll play the following dates, with support from Tay Iwar (who featured on the ‘rare.’ track ‘green light’) and Tomi Agape:
3rd – Manchester, Yes
4th – Birmingham, Hare & Hounds
6th – London, The Garage

Last year, Tems popped on the radar; a very hard-to-ignore presence with her single Mr Rebel. Her distinct vocals put her on our watchlist.

Tems’ new single Looku Looku produced by Oddio is another very emotive track. Looku Looku is a dedication to the discontent man: ‘what are you always looking for outside when I’m right here?’ after which she voices her need for his attention and validation.
We’re definitely looking forward to more from this amazingly talented woman.
