My tune this week comes from the international music making machine WurlD who’s linked up with Afrobeat producer Shizzi and Major Lazer member and vibes general Walshy Fire to create this infection, soul-shifting single ‘Show you off’.
WurlD, formally known as Sadiq Onifade is a Nigerian electronic-soul singer and songwriter I’ve come to know and love. Born in Lagos, Nigeria, his career began after moving to Atlanta. Described by VIBE Magazine as electro-fusion, WurlD released his first debut EP, Evolution, in 2013.
Show you off
In ‘Show You Off’, Walshy shares production duties with Nigerian beat maker Shizzi, the man behind Davido’s ‘Skelewu’, ‘Dami Duro’ and ‘Show you the money’ among many other top Nigerian hits. Walshy Fire has also been at the forefront of this new hybrid of Afrobeats and Caribbean sounds through collaborations with the likes of Wizkid and Runtown is currently working on finishing up an Afro-Caribbean EP called Global Citizen.
